    A partial closure of the US-Mexico border has disrupted the lives of thousands who depend on cross-border travel.

    But under the emergency policy, the US is also implementing strict anti-immigration measures.

    Human rights advocates have warned that the virus is being used to discriminate against migrants and asylum seekers.
