An immigrant mother from Cuba sits with her sons after crossing the border from Mexico, as they await processing by the U.S. Border Patrol earlier this year in Yuma, Arizona. Under Title 42, the pandemic-era border policy enacted by former President Donald Trump, such asylum seekers are to be expelled from the U.S. border.
