A would-be immigrant looks on next to tents outside the Temporary Immigration Centre in the early morning on March 21, 2014 in Melilla, Spain. Around 500 would-be immigrants entered Melilla on March 17 from Morocco, forcing the Temporary Immigration Centre (CETI) to shelter around four times its capacity, which is 480 people. The army has placed temporary tents outside the Centre to make space while the government has said it plans to send some to the peninsula.

Undocumented Immigrants: Faces Of The Displaced...IXTEPEC, MEXICO - AUGUST 05:  Guatemalan immigrant Javier, 14, spends a day at the Hermanos en el Camino immigrant shelter on August 5, 2013 in Ixtepec, Mexico. He said he planned to ride a freight train north later that night to continue his journey to the U.S. border and eventually to New Jersey. He said he wants to find work as an electrician, which has has been doing in Guatemala since he quit school at age 10 to help support his family. Thousands of Central American migrants ride atop the trains, known as 'la bestia', or the beast, during their long and perilous journey north through Mexico. Some of the immigrants are robbed and assaulted by gangs who control the train tops, while others fall asleep and tumble down, losing limbs or perishing under the wheels of the trains. Only a fraction of the immigrants who start the journey in Central America will traverse Mexico completely unscathed - and all this before illegally entering the United States and facing the considerable U.S. border security apparatus designed to track, detain and deport them.
