Jesús and his pregnant wife, Mariana, care for their 1-year-old daughter, Kataleya, at a tent camp in Juárez, Mexico, where they and dozens of other migrants are waiting for an appointment with U.S. immigration officials to request asylum in the U.S. The young family has been living in a two-person camping tent for two months. They are among some 16,000 asylum seekers who are stranded in Juarez following implementation of the Trump administration’s Migrant Protection Protocols, which force asylum seekers to stay in Mexico while they wait for their immigration proceedings.
