Receiving Refugees and Repressing Migrants: The Rhetoric and Reality of AMLO’s “Humanitarian” Policies
Mexico has recently received hundreds of Afghan refugees fleeing the Taliban. While AMLO’s administration tries to paint a humanitarian face, it doesn’t apply the same treatment to migrants stranded within the country.
