Torrential rains flood Tijuana migrant shelter

Rosa Julia Romero, a 4-year-old migrant girl from Honduras, part of a caravan of thousands from Central America trying to reach the United States, wears her mother's shoes as she walks through a temporary shelter after heavy rainfall in Tijuana, Mexico, November 29, 2018. Hundreds of mostly Central American migrants poured into a new shelter on Friday after torrential rains a day earlier reduced the old shelter at a sports complex to a muddy, smelly mess.
