A video of immigrant children crossing the US border with numbers stamped on their arms has sparked global outrage because it of its uncanny resemblance to inmates of Nazi concentration camps.

On December 14, US based journalist Cal Perry tweeted the video that depicted children crossing the US-Mexico border. According to the journalist, the children were waiting in line to cross into US from Juarez.

The children also had digits stamped on their srists and arms in black ink, much like the digits branded on the bodies of inmates in Nazi-era concentration camps in Germany.




The video was viewed by over 3.4 million people, with many reprimanding american authorities for the insensitive act.



















The horrific video surfaced amid a tumultous debate about the Trump administration's immigration policies that disctates that children of illegally entering immigrants be separated from their parents and put into detention centres or Border Patrol centres operated by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. On Decemeber 13, just a day before the video was shared on social media, a 7-year-old Gutamelan immigrant girl died due to dehydration and overexertion after being taken into Border Protection custody.
