Migrant family who fled tear gas at U.S. border seeks asylum

Migrant family who fled tear gas at U.S. border seeks asylumThe family appeared in a widely circulated photograph taken by Reuters as they fled tear gas thrown by U.S. authorities during a protest at the border last month when some migrants rushed the U.S. fence.

A system dubbed “metering” limits how many can ask for asylum each day at U.S. ports of entry, leading to months-long waits in Mexico for thousands of migrants fleeing violence in Central America.
