Photos from the latest migrant caravan

The migrant caravan that was seized upon by President Donald Trump in the run-up to the 2018 midterm election has quietly dwindled, with fewer than 700 migrants remaining by Jan. 14, 2019, at a site set up as a shelter for them in Tijuana, Mexico.

But a new caravan is heading toward the U.S.-Mexico border. Here are photos of the latest caravan.
