What is the true state of unaccompanied minors?

President Obama on Tuesday requested almost $4 billion from Congress to deal with the tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors waiting at the border. The Administration said the money will be relegated to border control and humanitarian aid and care. The request is under review. Maria Woltjen of The Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights at the University of Chicago Law School provides details on where these minors are coming from, and what happens once they get here.
