Bangladesh Needs to Stop Their Push Backs!

In Bangladesh, many people are being turned back to Burma. The people are trying to get away from the ongoing conflicts in Burma that are driving people out and being forced to looking for refuge in Bangladesh. But there is a problem with this, the Bangladeshi officials are not allowing for the refugees to find asylum there. The Bangladesh Coast Guard continues to push the boats with asylum seekers including children, back into the Burma ports leaving all of their efforts useless and sending them back into a state of danger. This is very mean and inconsiderate of the Burmese people but due to laws of refuge, Bangladesh has all of the right to do so. Do you think it is correct to send people back? How do you think countries should handle a situation like this? What about what's happening on the Mexican-US Border?
