The erosion of asylum in the Americas

June 20, 2022 — As part of the commemoration of International Refugee Day, Alianza Americas created these infrographics. Given the increase in people requesting asylum, we note with concern that state protection systems have not increased their capacity to promptly and fairly resolve the larger volume of cases, guaranteeing due process rights, which includes interpretation in a refugee’s native language, the right to a lawyer, psychological support, and family unity. Likewise, we strongly reject the normalization of the deprivation of liberty during asylum processes. Asylum seekers must be received and treated as what they are, people seeking protection.
