Scope of the Situation

From October 2013 to September 2015, US Customs and Border Protection apprehended more than 102,000 unaccompanied minors from Central America and Mexico at the US–Mexican border. An issue brief from the Migration Policy Institute details the scope of the situation, explains how the US immigration system is handling these cases, and documents the challenges these children face, often including recovery from trauma and gaps in formal education. The brief also notes how school districts serving unaccompanied minors have responded to the influx. Local school districts bear most of the cost of educating unaccompanied minors. The brief includes links to several federal programs that provide states and local education agencies with additional funds for the effort. It also highlights strategies affected school districts have used to serve these students. The report, Unaccompanied Child Migrants in U.S. Communities, Immigration Court, and Schools, is available to download, free of charge, on the Migration Policy Institute’s website.
