Central-American Minors in the U.S.

Hosted by

Last year, thousands of unaccompanied minors fled to America from violence in places like El Salvador and Guatemala. President Obama promised to create a legal pathway for these children to enter the country. Almost a year ago, the Central American Minors program was launched. The idea was to reunite more than five thousand children, mostly from El Salvador, with their parents already in the U.S. So how many have been brought to America under the program? Zero.
