The Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh have yet to come to terms with the trauma they had experienced in Myanmar. This week, we’ll share photos from Ahmer Khan’s visit to Cox’s Bazar to document in photographs the Rohingya people with what they held dearest to them during their troubled escape from home. 📸: Ahmer Khan/Amnesty International

This week, we have a delegation of our senior leadership visiting the US/Mexico border to observe the situation and to see the human rights of asylum seekers are being upheld.
Last night, our delegation joined partners @NIJC
, and @TransLawCenter
in accompanying three LGBT minors fleeing violence and persecution in Central America.
Our observations confirm reports that Mexican authorities are cooperating with the US to dissuade people from asking for asylum. We have seen the lengths Mexico and the US will take to violate the human rights of people, including children, desperately seeking safety.
