Unaccompanied minors are surging into the US from Mexico, many seeking a haven from gang violence or hoping the government will take pity on them But they endure terrible hardships on the way—like hunger, illness, robbery, and sexual assault. President Obama's "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" won't help them because it's for young immigrants who arrived in early 2007. (As for immigration reform, Congress is still thinking about it.) But some immigrants can get a green card if they show proof of neglect, abuse, or abandonment.

We have protesters stopping buses of migrant detainees headed to processing centers. However what is not known the house and senate gave approval to a bill that extends 1000 special visa to afghan citizens who have been working for the United states.

Overall some 3000 so-called special visa's were available this year to Afghanistan citizens who have worked as U.S. interpreters.
