In this Friday, July 11, 2014 photo, people are rafted to the Mexican shore, cross the Suchiate river that separates, Tecun Uman, Guatemala, with Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico, on makeshift rafts made ??from inner tubes of trucks attached to wooden boards. Scores of Central Americans who pay a modest fee, cross the broad Suchiate River on these improvised rafts in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on a bridge overhead.
