News developments to discuss include the federal action to provide relief and care to unaccompanied children from Mexico and Central America who are crossing the border in growing numbers. A community worker reports on the severe humanitarian crisis affecting families who have been detained and transferred to Arizona, and an expert says children migrate to escape the spiral of gang and drug-cartel violence that worsens by the day in Central America.
