Since 2011, over 50,000 unaccompanied children from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador—the so-called Central America’s “Northern Triangle”—have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border. It’s more than likely that 20,000 more children will get apprehended by border authorities by the end of this year. More than an immigration issue, this flood of children is a humanitarian crisis.
