A somewhat counter-intuitive effect of the wall. These migrants aren’t trying to cross the wall. Instead, because the wall is on US territory, they are standing next to it and waiting for the border patrol to arrest them.
Huddled against a border fence on a bitterly cold morning in El Paso, Texas, a group of 60 Guatemalan migrants, around half toddlers and children, shouted for help: "We're cold, we're hungry, we need shelter."
More than 1000 people in a single day, and potential signs that migration could be shifting again from remote crossings like Antelope Wells to El Paso.
Migrant crossings continued Thursday with groups walking across the Rio Grande from Executive Center Boulevard in West El Paso to the Lower Valley.
A side effect of “metering” policies nearby.
