Sharp fall in migrant ‘encounters’ at US-Mexico border

The US has reported a sharp fall in migrant “encounters” at its border with Mexico after COVID-era Title 42 restrictions ended last week.

Title 42 allowed US authorities to quickly send migrants back to Mexico without the chance of requesting asylum. It was intended to stem the spread of the coronavirus.
