ILL (Flight of the Children)
There has been an increase in unaccompanied children fleeing from Central America to the US. Many children say that criminal violence is their reason for leaving. It is believed that drug cartels are selling false tales of citizenship to the youths, who come from countries affected by violence by organized gangs. Three military bases have been opened to house the children, who are arriving in numbers so great that shelters are overwhelmed.
