              FILE - A pair of migrant families from Brazil seeking asylum walk through a gap in the border wall to reach the United States after crossing from Mexico to Yuma, Ariz., June 10, 2021. Despite the appearance of asylum being virtually banned, U.S. authorities process about six of every 10 people who cross illegally under immigration laws, which include the right to seek asylum. Nearly all of them, about 100,000 in December 2021 alone, are released or detained in the U.S. while judges consider their cases. (AP Photo/Eugene Garcia, File)
