Undocumented Migrant Children Face a Long Struggle after Entering the US

Miguel’s journey to the United States began in El Salvador where he was a gang member. When he refused to help the gang, his mother decided that he needed to leave immediately to escape the violence. His first attempt to cross failed, but his second attempt was successful. Just hours after crossing he was apprehended by US officials. Miguel’s story is not uncommon for migrant children from Central America and Mexico who are trying to escape violence in their home countries. Dr. Susan Terrio discussed undocumented migrant children in the U.S. at her March 28, 2017 talk.
