#BIGPICTURE: Migrant mother holds her son as they seek asylum


This is a terrified mother and her son in McAllen, Texas -- seeking asylum. That bright light you see on their faces coming from US Border Patrol. These two have journeyed all the way from Honduras...making it to Mexico, rafting across the Rio Grande...finally getting lost in the woods. Now -- they're detained by border patrol...and could be separated. Like many of these families, their future in this country is unclear. Photograph courtesy of John Moore, for Getty.
