Dr. Kara Cebulko, assistant professor of sociology at Providence College.
According to National Public Radio, since October, more than 52,000 children — most from Central America and many of them unaccompanied by adults — have been taken into custody after crossing the border into the United States. That's nearly double last year's total and 10 times the number from 2009.
President Obama has called on Congress to supply nearly $4 billion to deal with the problem. In the meantime, U.S. officials are doing what they can to discourage Central Americans from sending their children to the U.S. in the false belief they will readily be admitted into the country to live with relatives.
Dr. Kara Cebulko is an assistant professor of sociology at Providence College. She is available to comment on the current immigration crisis in Texas involving thousands of young children from Central America crossing the borders into the United States.
