Displaced Child Clings to her Father at a Refugee Camp in Mexico
A displaced child clings to her father outside Benito Juarez sports complex in Tijuana, Mexico, Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018. Asylum seekers previously housed at Benito Juarez have been evicted and moved on Friday, Nov. 30, 2018, due to flooding from rainfall. The new camp location, El Barretal, is a former concert venue in Tijuana, Mexico that has been repurposed into an impromptu shelter. Despite muddy conditions and suboptimal sanitation, some migrants chose to stay at Benito Juarez in fear of missing their asylum application appointment since the new camp locations are more than 10 miles away from the city.
