Abduldahi Abdi Jumbar (38)
Mohamed Shykh Abdullah (34)
Abdifatah Daud Sheikhdair (32)

 

Mil 495 niños han detenido en la frontera - "Prensa Libre" (Guatemala City, Guat., 12/16/14) reports that the migration of undocumented children and adolescents is not stopping.
Just in October and November U.S. Border Patrol Agents are reported to have apprehended 1,495 Guatemalan minors, while the tally for Salvadoran children was 1,115 and the one for Honduran children reached 506.
Guatemala's "Pastoral de Movilidad Humana" (Pastoral for Human Mobility) affirms that the root cause continues because "the State" has been unable to deal with the needs that cause children to emigrate, i.e., family reunification, the hounding by the gangs and the lack of opportunities for advancement.
Carol Giron, coordinator  of the Pastoral's "Unaccompanied Emigrant Children's Project," fears that the flow of undocumented children and of adults will increase, since historically it lessens in December due to the extreme cold and because many wish to spend the year-end holidays with their relatives and then go.
Deportation of children from the U.S. reached 141 boys and 50 girls. Mexico turned back 5,581 minors in eleven months.
