Photos: Central American Caravan Halted at U.S. Border
Yesterday, in Tijuana, more than a thousand of members of the Central American caravan marched to a bridge that leads to the San Ysidro International Border Crossing. There, they were stopped by Mexican Federal Police, where tensions grew, and the caravan scattered along the edge of the border, crossing the Tijuana River where they were repelled by tear gas launched by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. This is a small selection of images from yesterday’s news event made by Columbia, SC photojournalists Sean Rayford and Thomas Hammond. When Sean returns from Tijuana, the photographers will host a presentation and panel discussion in Columbia, S.C. Details coming soon.
