Less number of children detained at the US Border
The number of undocumented children, who cross the border into the United States without an accompanying adult, has declined dramatically by 50.
The Agency EFE and other media have reported that in the past 8 months the amount of children detained is 51 lower than the previous year, according to reports given by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The majority of these minors arrive from Guatemala followed by Mexico, El Salvador and Honduras.
One of the reasons for this decrease in the number of children crossing the border unaccompanied, is due to campaigns carried out by different governments of Central America, primarily Guatemala, warning the population of the dangers these minors will encounter if they attempt to cross into the U.S. illegally.
