Unaccompanied Migrant Minors and Chamapaign Urbana

by Ann Abbott

Around this time last year, the headlines were screaming almost every day about the "crisis" at our border, especially about the children from Central America who crossed multiple borders, on their own, to read the United States.

In one year, the memory has faded for most people.

In one year, there is still much work to be done. Thankfully, we have very dedicated people in the Champaign-Urbana area who are making things happen for the unaccompanied minors who are in our town.

Above, you can read what these children have to say. What they think. What they fear. What they hope for.

Here, you can read a statement from CU Immigration Forum about these children.
