Time has released its list of finalists for its 2018 Person of the Year.

Since 1927, Time has identified a person or group of people who most influenced the news and the world.

The shortlist announced on Monday includes:

  • More than 2,000 families separated at the US-Mexico border under a Trump administration policy aimed at preventing illegal immigration.
  • Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has investigated Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election as well as key figured involved in the Trump campaign.
  • Christine Blasey Ford, who testified in front of senators in September against then-Supreme Court nominee and now judge Brett Kavanaugh, accusing him of sexual assault when they were in college.
