A migrant learns from an advocate that U.S. authorities have approved her petition to enter the country to seek asylum on Saturday, July 3, 2021, at offices of Border Line Crisis Center in Tijuana, Mexico. Small numbers are allowed into the U.S. every day under a murky system that the Biden administration cobbled together to start opening back up the asylum system in the U.S. Immigration advocates have been tasked with choosing which migrants can apply for a limited number of slots to claim humanitarian protection.
