US: 2018’s shifting immigration policy leaves masses at border, kids detained
UPI – December 27, 2018
As 2018 draws to a close, the United States is holding 15,000 unaccompanied migrant children in detention, with a fifth of those in the Tornillo “tent city” in the the West Texas desert. In Tijuana, just across the border from San Diego, Calif., more than 5,000 Central American migrants are on waiting lists to seek asylum, blocked from international bridges by U.S. border sentries after marching thousands of miles together across Mexico.
