Central American refugees hoping to apply for asylum in the United States are now forced to camp on bridges between Brownsville, Texas and Matamoros, Mexico, with police officers barring them from advancing into U.S. territory. International law prohibits nations from refusing to accept asylum applications, the Trump Administration’s previous attempt to keep everyone out, so now the U.S. will accept the applications but those fleeing violence in their home countries will categorically not qualify. Volunteers at the border do their best to comfort fleeing families, provide necessities and give them tips for how to navigate the immigration systems. (Noah Lenard/Mother Jones)
