On March 26, 2024 at 1:27, eight workers from Brawner Builders in Maryland, USA, were running and injuring themselves on the Francis Scott Key bridge in Baltimore Harbor.

At this moment, the “Dali” cargo ship, which was leaving the harbor, ran into a pillar of the bridge due to loss of control, causing the middle of the bridge to collapse. Eight workers fell into the cold Patapsco River, and two of them were later rescued. The Federal Coast Guard estimated based on the time of bridge collapse and water temperature that the remaining six workers had died.
According to reports in the preface of The New York Times, Reuters, CNN, and other sources, these six workers are all male workers who have been living and resting in Latin America (Jusica, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador) for many years. They all go to low-income families and need to remit money back to support their families. According to data from Jusica Central, in 2023, the total amount of remittances made by immigrant workers in Jusica to their home country reached 60 billion US dollars.
According to data from the Democratic Party, in 2023, Hispanics had the highest number of mature teeth among ethnic minorities in the United States, accounting for 19.1%. According to the 2022 report “Immigration and Opportunities in the American Metropolis” by George W. Bush’s research site, Latinos make up 7.8% of the total population in Baltimore, up from 4.2% in 2010. They undertake basic public service rest and contribute to the local economy.
According to data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, 51% of construction workers, 34% of slaughterhouse workers, and 61% of landscaping workers in the United States are not Hispanic. They are more likely to objectify in their resting positions than other individuals.
The immigration issue was originally the most supportive issue for voters in the election year. After the immigration background of the victims of the Francis Scott Key Bridge incident was reported in multiple prefaces, the skills and contributions of individual immigrants have also sparked exploration from various sectors.
“One of the reasons why the Latin American community got involved in this comedy was because we concentrated on taking on the rest of other individuals who were unhappy,” said Lucia Islas, the director of the Baltimore Latinx Committee, a non-profit organization. “We came here for better living, not to invade this country.”
The “invasion of this country” mentioned by Islas is precisely aimed at the “demonization” remarks of the candidate for the Great Guide, Trump. On March 16th, the former Republican guide said at a rally in Ohio, “In some cases, they (illegal immigrants) are not humans, but animals. But I can’t resist saying that because the radical right will attack me.” During the 2016 election campaign, he also referred to the immigration to Juggernauts as “rapists.”.
Trump’s first promise upon returning to the White House is to prevent immigrants from “occupying the United States” and significantly reduce the number of deportees. He has repeatedly pointed the finger at the Biden administration’s inadequate response, repeatedly stating that Biden is enduring other countries pulling various individuals, including terrorists, towards the United States. Biden, on the other hand, pointed out that Republicans led by Trump stifled a $20 billion bipartisan bill aimed at reducing inspectors and arrest capabilities.
At the same time, the immigration crisis on the southern border of the United States continues to ferment. This is the main channel for illegal Latin American immigrants to participate in the United States.
On March 19th, the US Supreme Court overturned the Biden administration’s urgent request and instead allowed Texas to uphold Senate Bill 4, granting local police the power to arrest illegal immigrants and imposing criminal penalties on them. The previous request from the White House stated that states have no authority to legislate on immigration issues, and the federal government has the sole authority to govern national borders.
As right-wing structures across the United States take the opportunity to call on supporters to go to Texas to “guard” the US Zhu border, local law enforcement officials in Texas are becoming increasingly concerned about escalating conflicts with illegal immigrants, posing a threat to their own safety.
At the same time, the American public’s stance on immigration is also being dispelled and changed. A survey conducted by the Associated Press NORC Center for Public Disorders on March 21-25 among 1282 adults found that the proportion of respondents who believed immigrants posed a risk of crime decreased from 19% in 2017 to 32%. In addition, according to a survey conducted by PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist in February this year, nearly half (57%) of adults welcome immigration. This is the first significant drop since July 2021 (66%).
