Description

Mother Jones published a months-long investigation into this surge of "tens of thousands of unaccompanied children, some as young as five, crossing the border" each year. Ian Gordon reports that these minors face a perilous journey to escape extremely violent and impoverished conditions in their home country. In 2013, the number of unaccompanied minors apprehended crossing the border more than doubled to 38,833 and this year, officials estimate the number will double again to more than 70,000.
