Violence, loophole drive C. American kids' exodus to US

Part of a group of 16 Guatemalan children caught in Mexico while trying to migrate illegally into the United States, at Aurora international airport in Guatemala City on July 14, 2014The wave of Central American children making the risky journey to reach the United States is being driven by violence in their home countries and a loophole in US law, analysts say. The exodus of minors from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras has become a humanitarian crisis and overwhelmed the United States’ border patrol, shelters and immigration courts. At least 57,000 unaccompanied minors from Central America have been detained since October, says Washington, which predicts the figure will rise to 90,000 by the end of September — up from 39,000 last year, 25,000 in 2012 and 16,000 in 2011.
