« Live from the El Paso border crossing in Texas on Monday, October 9, as the city struggles to provide shelter for thousands of migrants arriving every day.
According to Mayor Oscar Leeser, as many as 2,000 people require shelter each night. The number of migrants trying to reach the US has increased significantly in recent months all along the southern border.
