In a press call in advance of Vice President Biden’s trip to Guatemala tomorrow, immigration activist Wendy Young admitted that no one knows how many of the tens of thousands of underage immigrants being apprehended along the southern border are being released into the United States.
Child migration to the US has been on the rise since 2012, but spiked dramatically this year, with US Customs and Border Protection reporting a 92% increase in apprehensions of “unaccompanied alien children” between the 2013 fiscal year and just the first eight months of the 2014 fiscal year. Michelle Brané, director of Migrant Rights and Justice, said that “we are on track to see 90 thousand or more arrive at the southern border” by the end of this fiscal year in September. The minors are coming predominantly from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
