Description:This image is Kelly Overton, the founder of Border Kindness, an organization working with migrants at the US-Mexico border. He runs a place called the "Pink Shelter" for families and LGBTI migrants in the Mexican border town of Mexicali. As a human rights defender, he has been harassed for his work by the US government.

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.
