    Thousands of children have been separated from their parents, hundreds of families with no idea when they would see each other again.

    Our Latin America correspondent Guillermo Galdos has been following two who, with tens of thousands of others, are so desperate to flee the danger and destruction in their homelands, they risk everything in the attempt to make it to the United States.

    One of the main reasons why people from Central America and Mexico decide to migrate and look for asylum in the U.S. is the violence in their communities. This violence is mainly a result of the drug cartels and criminal gangs fighting between them for control of the cocaine trafficking routes.

    Who is creating the demand for all that cocaine? The glorius United States of America.

    It is time for the U.S. to stop the international demand for cocaine. It is time.

    Donald Trump is going to decide someday that he is going to let everyone in the u.s but I know why he doesn't because he thinks that other countries Are bad like Mexico it not a bad country or nothing like that all the want is to get a better life in the u.s but still I dont like Donald Trump for the crimes he did and all the kids that he separated from there moms and dads I feel bad for them 😥😥😥😥😥😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😥😞😞😞😞😟😟

    I hate racist trump for not letting these poor innocent people in to our rich country. Only keep the Latino criminals out of our country. But let the nice innocent in.

    Are they seeking asylum... Yes! Have they reached Mexico...Yes! Does Mexico offer them asylum... Yes! If they would have stayed in Mexico and taken the asylum offered they would not have been split up from their children!! But hey let’s blame Trump, even though he didn’t create any of the laws that separate children, he just upholds them. Sad but Simple..

    I know people want to come to America and Mexico’s conditions are awful but American can’t hold everyone. The ways to get into America are very hard but it’s law and Mexico’s government can do something about it but the gangs are terrible
