Unaccompanied children from Central America streamed across the border into the United States. They endured hunger, violence, and hardships as they made this trip. While they waited for their status to be determined, they were herded into army barracks, put on buses, housed in dog kennels, and made to feel very unwelcome. This was shameful and inhumane. This piece is to remind us of the plight of these immigrant children caught in violence and fleeing their homes for survival.
