Brownsville-Matamoros camp is a temporary residence for Central Americans, Haitians, Cubans and Venezuelans who are waiting for their asylum appointments that could grant them entry into the U.S. Dairon Elizondo Rojas, a Cuban doctor, became a camp doctor while seeking his asylum for the last 11 months. While waiting, Rojas is looking after patients at the camp with the hope that his court date,  scheduled for June 23, will be his last.
