The Rio Grande under Trump
Last fall, during the waning months of the Obama administration, hundreds of immigrants crossed the river on rafts at this point each day, many willingly handing themselves over to immigration authorities in hopes of being released into the United States to await court proceedings that would decide their fate.

Now, the agents look out on an empty landscape. Foot paths up from the water have started to disappear under growing brush, with only the stray baby shoe or toothbrush serving as reminders of that migrant flood.

An extortion letter that Ruth Merlo said is from a Honduran gang directed at her and her sons is seen at migrants shelter in McAllen, Texas. The letter reads: Mrs Ruth, The reason I'm writing you is to inform you that your childrens' heads have a price. If you don't want anything to happen to them then you have to pay the amount of 400,000 Lempiras (17,060 USD) exactly 200,000 for each one. And if you don't pay that money in the time we tell you then we will send them to you in bags, better you pay all the money. BEWARE! Be very careful and discrete, if by chance you say something to the police then you children will die much faster than what you would imagine, its better that you keep you mouth closed and that you have the money in cash I won't repeat this again I've been very clear. Very soon you will receive information and instructions on where the money will be delivered, we will also send you a phone number to coordinate the place for the delivery of the money. One thing, I tell you that we're watching over your two children, one studies in INTAO and the colony where Rommy lives and Ander is with you. REUTERS/Carlos Barria
