The Wider Image: U.S. government funds free rides from Mexico for migrants
Migrant from Honduras, Dunia Ayala, carries one of her children outside a shelter after she was sent by the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to Mexico from the U.S. under the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), in Tijuana, Mexico, July 21, 2019. "I crossed to the U.S. with my family, we gave ourselves up to the border patrol, then they took us to a place where it was very cold, they took all our belongings, jackets, shoelaces, everything, then started to question us. We feel very intimidated by them. My husband said to them, 'We didn't have the fortune to be born in a country like yours, we just want a better future for our kids.' Anyway they forced us to sign a paper of the MPP. Now, we have an appointment, but after the way they treated us, we are going back to Honduras."
