Every day, hundreds of migrants cross the wall that separates the United States from Mexico in Southern California. But once on American soil, it's the start of a days-long wait in makeshift outdoor camps unsupervised by authorities.

A wall separating the United States from Mexico is supposed to prevent illegal entry into the United States. But in Southern California, there are now many crossover points. Small gaps between the wall and the mountain through which hundreds of migrants slip every day. That morning, about sixty people from all over the world came to try their luck. As parting approaches, everyone rushes for fear of arrest. For everyone, it's a relief. The scene plays out several times a day in front of helpless American police officers who are stunned by this massive influx.

Border police need not provide water

On American soil, this is the start of a wait that can last several days. Migrants find themselves in temporary outdoor camps unsupervised by authorities. Here, border police are not required to provide water, shelter and food. If the immigrants wait there, it's because they know that once they're noticed by authorities, they can seek asylum and be on American soil.
