As they wait to make their case for asylum, thousands of Central American migrants are living at the Benito Juarez Sports Complex, which has become a makeshift shelter in Tijuana, Mexico.

Human-rights groups have described conditions inside this shelter as squalid and unsanitary, and Tijuana's mayor says his city needs more help to handle it.

It could be months before these migrants have their cases heard, and the waiting list grows longer every day.
