    A New Wave Of Central American Kids Will Reach The US Soon According To Experts

    Immigration News: A New Wave Of Central American Kids Will Reach The US Soon According To Experts

    By Latin Times | Sep 21 2014, 11:16AM EDT


    While the U.S. government acknowledges that there is still a lot to do about the crisis of Central American children entering the country, experts and activists believe that sooner rather than later a new wave of unaccompanied youngsters will arrive at the border with Mexico.
" The situation in Central America hasn't changed, we have the same problems of insecurity and violence, the lack of governability continues and jobs are still a problem - there is no work for young people who are members of cartels or street gangs," the director of the Americas Program of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Carl Meacham, told Efe on Thursday.


    Though the entry of unaccompanied youngsters has declined in recent months following the massive arrivals in May and June, "that won't last long," Meacham said. 
He said that President Barack Obama's delay in easing immigration has sparked dispair among families, which is why they prefer to pay for their kids to be brought north, whatever the risks they run.
"

    The president has not acted, Congress has not acted and the circumstances of the situation have not changed. There has been no legislation or change from the executive branch to eliminate the reasons why these children come to the United States," Meacham said.
 By August 31, the number of of minors who had crossed the border unaccompanied was more than 66,000 in fiscal year 2014, which began on October 1, 2013.
