US migrant crisis: Family divided while waiting for asylum

As Donald Trump's 45-day deadline for Mexico to curb migration to the US fast approaches, some migrant families are facing an uncertain future.

Among the measures put in place is the so-called "Remain in Mexico" policy - where asylum seekers are sent back across the border to wait for their applications to be processed.
