Unaccompanied Children at the Border

U.S. Customs and Border Protection struggles to process the rising numbers of minors.

June 20, 2014

With more than 47,000 unaccompanied children sneaking into the country since Oct. 1, two U.S. Customs and Border Protection facilities have been key in dealing with processing the illegal immigrants. The Brownsville, Texas, and Nogales, Ariz., facilities handle a large portion of the illegal immigrants who come to the United States, mostly from Central American countries.
