The escalating influx of unaccompanied Central American Minors has brought desperately needed nation attention to the situations of poverty and violence from which these children are fleeing. Our speakers will shed light on these conditions and discuss how United States policy in Honduras has historically crippled Central American economies and continues to force children out of their home countries to embark on the treacherous journey north.
We will discuss Obama administration’s response to the unaccompanied minors and how it fits into their overall emphasis on enforcement and deportation.
