The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – A report by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs presented by Deputy Humberto Vargas in the Commission for Children and Adolescents reported that at least 5 less Costa Rican kids could be among the over 4,000 to be deported from the United States.
The Commission approved a motion to ask the U.S. embassy handling the investigation in order to clarify the situation of these children and ensure that their rights are respected.
“We have passed a motion to give executive order to the Legislative Assembly so that the thousands of unaccompanied children who are in vulnerable cannot be deported to the Mexico border and will be attended to urgently by international organizations like the UN and UNHCR.”
According to Vargas, and the Foreign Ministry is taking action on the matter, but ensures that the National Children’s Trust (Pani) is also involved in the situation.
“In those 4,000, five children have been identified, but there may be more and we must analyze their condition,” Vargas said.
