Pictures of the Year: Caravans: the new face of migration
A four-year-old boy weeps in the arms of a family member as he and others were apprehended by border patrol agents after illegally crossing into the U.S. border from Mexico near McAllen, Texas, U.S., May 2, 2018. Reuters photographer Adrees Latif: "U.S. Border Patrol agents tracked the shoe prints of nine migrants from Central America and Mexico into dense brush along the U.S. Mexican border. When agents encountered the group, most of them were asleep after travelling overnight. As the migrants came out of the brush, I noticed a young boy. His face was full of mosquito bites. The mood became somber as the boy started weeping. His wails echoed through the forest behind us. I would later find out the man he was embracing was his uncle and because he was not a parent, the two soon would be separated. As a parent of young children, this moment in particular has been heart wrenching and leaves me still wondering about the fate of this young boy and his family."
