The New York Times made a revelation that amazes millions of people.
The Trump Administration decided to expel many seriously ill immigrants from the country who were receiving medical care.
They had requested that, at least, they were moved until the end of their treatments, but they failed.
In a palliative attempt, officials announced that they will only reopen "some" of those requests.
Early last August, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) reported that it was stopping the deportation of immigrants or their relatives assisted with decisive medical care.
The mentioned agency belongs to the Department of Homeland Security, and sent letters to those who requested relief against expulsion, a step that can be taken every two years.
In these letters, the USCIS warned two things: they would not extend what was requested, and they had to leave the United States within 33 days.
Otherwise, it pointed out, they would be deported, a threat that generated heavy opinions and criticism from medical experts, said the Times.
However, the USCIS reported in a statement that it considers "appropriate" how to limit the program.
The newspaper estimated that the abrupt decision has been executed at a time when Trump takes controversial steps against illegal and legal immigration.
A week ago, 130 senators and Democratic representatives wrote a letter to the interim secretary of National Security, Kevin McAleenan, where they described the measure as "cruel and inhuman."
What are the sufferings of people damaged by Trump's decision?
Cancer, epilepsy, brain palsy, muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis, according to their medical records.
