US to step up enforcement to stem child immigration surge

The move comes while Vice President Joe Biden is in the region to discuss the problem, which has further roiled the already toxic debate over immigration reform in the United States. The White House said the government would step up enforcement resources to hold and process children and adults who bring them into the country illegally. Between October 2013 and the end of May 2014, US border officials intercepted more than 47,000 unaccompanied minors trying to illegally enter the United States, almost twice the number registered between October 2012 and the end of September 2013.
