Abstract

The summer of 2014 saw an unprecedented increase in the number of children from Central America immigrating into the USA. This paper examines these events by setting the context of immigration across the USA–Mexico border, reviewing the extent and causes of the influx in immigration, and detailing the political, legal, and social work responses to the child migrants. This article contributes implications for rights-based practice with child migrants.
