Official representatives of the US migration service force many illegitimate parents, who have been separated by children, to sign forms of deportation.

Human rights activists report that immigration agents offer parents, agree to voluntary deportation, to see their children again. Lawyers have provided HuffPost with documents supporting this information.

Moreover, migrants are told that they are deported with or without children – the choice is only for them. Thus, people stop asking for asylum and sign consent to voluntary expulsion from the country.

“Agents tell them: You do not have the opportunity to seek refuge and reunite with your children. You either have the opportunity to deport with your child, or without him, “says Gracie Willis, a lawyer at the Southern Center for Poverty Reduction (SPLC).

Although Trump signed an order to end the separation by the family on June 20, and a recent court decision requires families to be reunited within 30 days, more than 2,000 parents did not see their children after being detained.
