The new shelter is being run by federal authorities.
Migrants, part of a caravan of thousands from Central America trying to reach the United States, are seen in San Diego County, U.S., after crossing illegally from Mexico to the U.S.by jumping a border fence, photographed through the border wall in Tijuana, Mexico, December 3, 2018. "They were brought to the border by a group that told them they would be able to cross easily into the U.S.to present asylum claims, and that's not the case".
