The New Faces of Immigration: 57,000 Central American Children

Hosted by

America is divided over whether to call them refugees, illegal aliens, or just kids who need protection after risking their lives to come to this country. Should they be given asylum as refugees, or sent back to Central America as soon as possible with the message that others will not be welcome? President Obama is stuck with a law that makes resolution a laborious process, and he’s been forced to ask for help from an unsympathetic Congress. We’ll hear about a humanitarian crisis that’s become a political minefield.

Also, the UN chief calls for an end to the fighting between Israel and Palestine, and where did the new generation get new technology to re-shape the Middle East?
