MICHEL MARTIN, HOST: We’re going to stick with immigration for a few more minutes. The U.S.-Mexico border has been closed to most migrants during the pandemic, including those seeking asylum. The majority of those who try to enter the U.S. have been quickly expelled to Mexico. Now the Biden administration is expanding efforts to grant humanitarian exceptions for migrants considered vulnerable. That includes transgender people stuck in Mexican border cities. Angela Kocherga from member station KTEP in El Paso, Texas, reported this story in Juarez.
