More Asylum Seekers Arrive at Nogales Port

An update on CBP's policies surrounding the processing of asylum seekers.

This month, dozens of people have arrived at the ports of entry in Nogales to request asylum. Customs and Border Protection says the agency's current policy is to keep families together while at the ports "to the extent that is operationally feasible." Lorraine Rivera met asylum seekers in Nogales, Sonora, waiting to be processed.
