The number of migrants who drowned in the Pacific Ocean trying to reach the United States rose sharply after the Trump administration added 30-foot steel barriers in the San Diego area. This is according to an article published Thursday in JAMA, the American Medical Association's journal.

The border wall expansion was completed in San Diego in 2019. From 2020 to 2023, 33 migrants died in the Pacific, according to U.S. government and United Nations data cited by the report's authors. During the four-year period that preceded the barrier project, one drowning death occurred.

The authors of the study say that the increase in deaths is likely due to the fact that the barriers have made it more difficult for migrants to cross the border on foot. As a result, they are forced to take more dangerous routes, such as swimming across the Pacific Ocean.

The study's findings have been met with mixed reactions. Some people believe that the barriers are necessary to prevent illegal immigration, while others argue that they are inhumane and put migrants at risk.
