Description:This image is of Yolanda, the woman who runs El Jardin De Las Mariposas, an LGBTI shelter in Tijuana, Mexico, a town at the border of the US and Mexico. She is a human rights defender who chose to open the shelter in honor of her son, a gay Mexican human right defender.

The North America IS team carried out a mission to the US/Mexico border to observe and interview migrants who have been forced to wait in Mexico before their asylum claims in the US or heard or throughout the duration of their asylum claim as dictated by Trump's recent "Migrant Protection Protocol" policy.
