LAS CRUCES, NM - MAY 17: A U.S. map is displayed with pins marking locations where asylum seekers will travel to meet their sponsors, in a shelter for migrants who are seeking asylum, on May 17, 2019 in Las Cruces, New Mexico. After being released by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to the shelter, asylum-seekers are normally transferred from the shelter to their U.S. sponsors around the country as they await their asylum requests. Approximately 1,000 migrants per day are being released by authorities in the El Paso sector of the U.S.-Mexico border, which includes Las Cruces. Las Cruces has processed over 5,000 asylum seekers since it began receiving them from the Border Patrol on April 12. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)
