Immigration

FILE - In this July 16, 2019, file photo, people line up to cross the border into the United States on International Bridge 1, in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. Mexicans are increasingly the face of asylum in the United States, replacing Central Americans who dominated last year's caravan and a surge of families that brought border arrests to a 13-year high in May. It is unclear precisely what is driving the change, perhaps a mix of U.S. policies and violence in Mexico. U.S. Customs and Border Protection figures show fewer Mexicans are crossing, but the drop in Central Americans is much sharper, making Mexicans a bigger part of the mix. (AP Photo/Marco Ugarte, File)
