SAN DIEGO (AP) – The Guatemalan father carried his 6-year-old son on his shoulders as he walked with U.S. Border Patrol agents in the searing mid-morning sun after crossing California’s border with Mexico. They had been walking for two days in the scrubby mountains on the edge of Tijuana, Mexico. It is unforgiving cactus-dotted land. They came across agents about a mile away from the towering prototypes of the new wall that President Donald Trump has proposed building.

The encounter illustrates the enduring arrival of migrants from Central America even in the face of the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance policy that at first separated thousands of immigrant children from their parents before it was halted under public pressure. A federal judge in San Diego has ordered authorities to reunite around 2,000 children who were separated from their parents when they were detained over the past month.

The article goes on to state the following:

About a dozen people swam across the Rio Grande near Brownsville, Texas, in the early morning Friday, only their heads poking out of the water. A pedestrian bridge spanning over the river was lined with an equal number of asylum seekers – from Cuba to Guatemala – who reclined on towels and blankets on the steamy concrete on the Mexican side, waiting to hear from authorities as to when U.S. immigration officials can meet them to hear their cases.

A few days earlier, two Honduran women – one with a 12-year-old daughter and one with a year-old boy – turned themselves into Border Patrol agents after a smuggler carried them on a makeshift raft across the Rio Grande and dropped them off on its muddy banks as the temperature hovered close to 100 degrees near McAllen, Texas.
