Mexican government accused of not helping US asylum seekers

In Mexico's Tijuana, thousands of Central American migrants feel the Mexican government is breaking its promises.

    Mexico's president has written to the other G20 leaders to urge them to address the Central American migration crisis.

    Mexico is already giving refuge to more than 14,000 Central Americans who the US has sent back across the border while it processes their asylum requests. This new and controversial policy started in January.

    Many are struggling to find work, most barely have a roof over their heads and that is thanks to privately run migrant shelters on the border.

    But now, under a new US-Mexico agreement, the country is scheduled to take potentially 60,000 more.

    Al Jazeera's John Holman has been meeting migrants on the streets of the border city of Tijuana.
