Donald Trump assumed U.S. presidency in 2016 and, since then, the policies of xenophobia and hatred towards immigrant citizens have increased.

Demonstrators protest against the policy of zero tolerance of President Donald Trump:

Not only international and human rights organizations have expressed their outrage at these racist measures. Figures of the show have taken time to share in their social networks, not only their concern but also to ask the congressmen to intervene in the diplomatic issue with urgency.
However, Donald Trump seems to be turning a deaf ear and has preferred to apply his "zero tolerance" policy by saying that his country needs "security." Meanwhile, children are being locked in cages and separated from their parents.
