A crowd has gathered outside Centro de Atencion Integral a Migrantes in Ciudad Juarez. This is where migrants come to check their number on a long list of asylum seekers.
It’s scorching here – over 100 degrees. A woman is selling ice cold soda and water from a small cooler. People fan out on benches under big, shady trees, trying to avoid the sun.
These migrants are just some of the thousands of asylum-seekers staying in Mexican border cities right now, waiting for their turn to legally cross the border and make their case in court.
