联合国权利主管抨击美国政策造成家庭分离 UN Rights Chief Blasts US Policy of Family Separation

联合国人权事务高级专员扎伊德·拉阿德·侯赛因星期一呼吁美国停止其“不合情理的”政策,说该政策强迫让非正常从墨西哥进入美国的未成年人与他们的移民父母分离。

侯赛因说,这项政策已经在过去6个星期影响了近2000名儿童。任何国家通过对儿童实施这种虐待来寻求遏制他们的父母移民,是“不合情理的”。

这是即将于8月卸任的联合国人权事务高级专员星期一在人权委员会定期会议上最后一次发言。

The U.N. human rights chief is urging the Trump administration to end new policies separating migrant children from their parents after entering the United States from Mexico, saying they’ve affected nearly 2,000 kids in the last six weeks.

Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein says it’s “unconscionable” that any country would seek to deter parents from migrating “by inflicting such abuse on children.”

He spoke at Monday’s opening of a regular Human Rights Council session, his last before his term ends in August.
