FROM THIS EPISODE

Asylum seekers who cross the Mexican border are put in jail, but children are not allowed. Some kids end up hundreds of miles from the grownups they came with for months at a time. Are they really part of the same family, or pawns in the game of immigration fraud? Even some hard-line immigration opponents want that and other questions answered with greater humanity.
