Is the new wave of unaccompanied children crossing the US border from Central America interfering with comprehensive immigration reform or demonstrating poor border security?

“Bob Ortega, senior reporter for The Arizona Republic, talks about his reporting from both sides of the border on why the kids say they want to come to the US, and the message in their home countries about the dangerous journey.”  Listen here to the WNYC report, “What Unaccompanied Minors Mean for Immigration Reform”
