Pictures of the Year: Caravans: the new face of migration
Migrants, part of a caravan travelling to the U.S., make a human chain to pull people from the river between Guatemala to Mexico in Ciudad Hidalgo and continuing to walk in Mexico, October 29, 2018. Reuters photographer Leah Millis: "This photograph was taken as Central American migrants crossed the Suchiate river, the natural border between Guatemala and Mexico en masse. This was the second caravan of people who had formed behind the first big one. There was a part of the river that had a strong current and was deeper than the rest of their route. So the migrants linked arms, held hands and made human chains to help pull people on to the Mexico bank. Often as they worked together they chanted "si se puede!" which means "yes we can!"
