US sees highest number of migrants crossing over in decades
Al Jazeera, 17 May 2021
More than 178,000 migrants were found crossing the US southern border in April.
That is among the highest monthly total seen in 20 years.
The migrants are mostly from Central America - where the pandemic and back-to-back hurricanes worsened already struggling economies.
Al Jazeera's Heidi Zhou-Castro reports from the Texas-Mexico border.
