12:25 am
is there and joins us now. first of all, what's going on with these new fights? they're taking migrants into mexico. why is the us doing this well, this started actually before these flights for some include ty, $242.00, which is a decades old health provision. which basically means that anyone showing up in crossing the us border and possibly ask for asylum doesn't necessarily need to be seen. they can be turned straight back because of a health emergency. and president trump's administration started to apply that same that, that applied to the pandemic. to cove it president bite and now is continued that dissenting people across the board or from the us. but what seems to be the case, the administration is worried that they keep coming back. so to stop that from happening, that now flying them here to talk to where we are right now, which is right at the south, submit her next to the board with boston, marla, there also find them to another city on the board or some other code. the most so
12:26 am
that's the u. s. sort of strategy, a new strategy. it seems to try and stop people repeatedly trying to cross into the united states. why are they doing that? the u. s. seems to be concerned the mon, about over crowding, their board of facilities about a spike in the number of apprehensions and also about new strains of cove it. so that's the justification to this right group, including the un have criticize it. so you're going to give people access to asylum and also you can't fly them straight down to the south, the country where they're not possibly safe and you know, what are the people they're telling you about their experiences in trying to get the united states and then being sent back like this but that's how much they manage to speak to a couple of people last night. they've been sent back home one of those flights. i should say it's not just being sent back to the city of mexico, then the mexican authorities, a busing them actually into guatemala. so it's
12:27 am
a sort of double deputation yet one step here. and you get bus back a little bit further back on the route and they would basically see the bit show shows. one them would say, i'm not sure what i'm going to do. now. he was a farmer. he paid more than $10000.00 to a people's burglar to get him on that route up to the united states. me said, well now i'm in a lot of that. i'm not quite sure how i'm going to be able to pay that off. that's a very, very common story. if those heading up, a lot of them would have passed a lot of difficulty to get to the us border. even though from guatemala, they still going to travel free mexico. a lot of gang and call tow held territories were really anything can happen if they're coming from further down south in the continent. they've also got to get past a place to live with daddy and got which my colleagues that i suppose been reported on, which is an incredibly lawless error area of land in which, right and robbery, a pretty common place. these people have suffered quite a lot to get up to the united states. then there are being abruptly turned around and place back here in mexico. so i think there's going to be
12:28 am
