Violence in Central America Pushes Unaccompanied Kids Into USA


"Violence in three Central American countries is the primary reason behind a dramatic upsurge in the number of unaccompanied immigrant children crossing the border into the United States, and until conditions in these countries change substantially, this trend will be the new norm, cautions the Women’s Refugee Commission in Forced From Home: The Lost Boys and Girls of Central America, a report released today." – Women's Refugee Commission, Oct. 15, 2012.
