Critical Condition

Rampant poverty and violence are driving young people from Central America and Mexico, with Guatemalans, Hondurans, Salvadorans and Mexicans accounting for 97 percent of detained unaccompanied children. 

Many children hope to reunite with relatives in the U.S. but others deliberately leave their families behind, fleeing domestic abuse, criminal gangs, or local corruption. The alarming increase of unaccompanied minors held in U.S. detention centers have peaked at 473,682 within the last year.
