52,000 children from Central America have been caught crossing into the United States illegally from Oct. 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014! And they are coming alone, without an adult! They come from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, escaping the gang violence and poverty that plague those countries. When the parents are afraid that their children might be kidnapped or killed, they save up enough money to send their children to the United States. They have heard that the United States will let children stay. This is a lie spread by smugglers who typically charge 8 thousand dollars for each child they bring. Usually they take them across Mexico to Texas, to a place where there is no fence. They tell the kids where to cross the border and then they are immediately picked up by the U.S. Border Patrol. They are taken to a detention center, where a legal process begins that may take years to resolve. They can't just be returned to Mexico if they aren't from Mexico. Many children have a parent who is already living and working here, and they come to join them. But it is a very dangerous trip.
About 1200 people are arrested when they try to cross the border illegally EVERY DAY! The numbers are overwhelming! Because Texas is getting so many, they are sending planeloads of them to California for processing. Religious groups are helping. Even the Pope has gotten involved. He is asking countries to help the children.
