Migrants fleeing Central America and parts of southern Mexico traveled nearly a month before arriving in Tijuana, Mexico, where they were placed in shelters. The migrants, pictured here in 2018, planned to ask the U.S. immigration courts for asylum after presenting themselves at the U.S. port of entry at San Ysidro, California. The immigration courts have widely varying rates of denial for asylum claims.(Photo by Photography by Todd Bigelow)
