Migrants in Mexico: Journey to the U.S. border(16 images)

Migrants, many coming from Cuba, Central America, Africa or Haiti, make the dangerous journey through Mexico, hoping to ultimately make it to the U.S. border to seek asylum. Mexico has started creating detention centers for migrants and issuing visas restricted to Mexico's southern states to discourage them from continuing on to the United States.
