Guest: Kari Hong, Assistant Professor, Boston College Law School More than 5,000 migrants are camped out in Tijuana in deteriorating conditions, waiting to gain access to the US Port of Entry where they hope to make a claim for asylum in America. Most of them have travelled from Honduras, but US border agents are only allowing a limited number of asylum seekers to cross over each day. So the migrants are effectively in limbo and Tijuana’s mayor says the situation is a humanitarian crisis. The caravan of thousands arriving all at once like they did has overwhelmed the city’s shelters and a sports complex that has been converted into a camp.
