TIJUANA, BC-NOVEMBER 02, 2015:
Pedestrians wait to cross into the United States at the San Ysidro port of entry. Citizens from Mexico, Central America, and many other global countries apply for asylum here. Depending on their paperwork, an application may be accepted, denied, or processed for consideration, at which point the applicant may be moved to a detention facility within the United States. Many applicants are unaware of what is required to achieve legal status and have few records available
to them from their home country.
