Jude Joffe-Block, Fronteras, June 9, 2016- "Between July 2014 and April 2016, the U.S. initiated removal proceedings against more than 64,000 children who arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border without their parents, according to data from the Executive Office of Immigration Review. Many of these children were fleeing violence in their home countries of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, and were trying to reunite with family members in the United States. In that same period, immigration judges have ruled on 27,500 cases involving unaccompanied child migrants. Some 40 percent of those child defendants never found a lawyer to help them. Thousands more minors face the same fate despite government efforts to fund more free lawyers."
