Confronting the Unaccompanied Children Immigration Crisis: Perspectives from Central America, Mexico, and the United States
James Steinberg, Dean of the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University
2014 has seen a surge in unaccompanied children from Central America seeking entrance to the United States to escape violence and poverty in their home countries. The result has been a crisis on multiple fronts, which is only further complicated by the cross-border nature of the phenomenon.
The event discussion focused on medium- and long-term solutions to the unaccompanied children immigration problem. The panel brought together experts from Mexico, the United States, Guatemala, and El Salvador in order to understand each country's perspectives as well as to identify potential areas for cooperation.
