Rejected from US, Haitian migrants form community in Mexico

With nowhere else to go, the Haitian community in Tijuana now consists of around 4,000 people.

    Thousands of asylum seekers from Haiti who were denied entry in the United States two years ago have established a community on Mexico's northwestern border.

    Many have been granted work visas by the government, and are helping new migrants adjust to life in Mexico.

    Al Jazeera's Manuel Rapalo reports from Tijuana, just across the US border.
