Background: Last year, more than 60,000 mothers and children fled their homes in Central America and came to the U.S. seeking asylum (another 60,000 children traveled without a parent). A combination of factors have contributed to this migration, including domestic violence, gang violence, drought, and poverty in Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala.
