Every year thousands of children from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Mexico, many younger than 13, enter the U.S. without documentation and are detained by immigration authorities. Many could qualify for asylum or another status that would allow them to stay in the U.S., but few win their cases. Those with legal representation are nine times as likely to win, but most have no lawyer. Learn about this problem from an Immigration attorney with expertise in immigration and the family and an anthropologist who studies migrant youth, especially from Guatemala.
