Unaccompanied minors crossing U.S.-Mexico border on the rise

The Washington Office on Latin America is set to release a new report next week on the growing humanitarian crisis at the Mexican border. Adam Isacson, a senior associate for regional security policy with the Washington Office on Latin America, joins us to discuss the findings.
