'Everybody cries here': Hope and despair in Mexican shelter

In this July 31, 2019, photo, Alphat, of Uganda runs through a neighborhood surrounding the El Buen Pastor shelter for migrants in Cuidad Juarez, Mexico. Alphat runs relentlessly, and seemingly effortlessly. People stop to stare, surprised to see a black man with ham-sized biceps and impossibly broad shoulders running through this city, which has long been a magnet for migrants.
