Border Order

From Reuters: “Hopes rose on Tuesday among a caravan of migrants who traveled from Central America to seek asylum in the United States after US border authorities allowed the first small group of women and children entry from Mexico overnight.”

+ “They all planned to seek asylum in the United States. But someone had to be at the front of the line. And in end, they picked her.” The migrants selected Gabriela Hernandez to be among those to go across the border first. “Hernandez had fled a threat of violence in Honduras with her sons, ages 6 and 2.”

+ “They’re doing this to make a point: ‘Don’t come here. We don’t want you.'” The New Yorker on the Trump administration’s hard line on refugees.

+ “Over the past month, the Trump administration has taken aim at a previously uncontroversial set of child protection laws created to protect young people who cross into the United States without a parent or guardian.” A joint investigation by The Marshall Project and the NYT: Trump’s Quiet War on Migrant Kids.
