Unaccompanied Child Migration to the United States: The Tension between Protection and Prevention

This research report, published by the Migration Policy Institute and written by Marc R. Rosenblum, explains the shifting patterns of Central American migration between 2011 and 2014 while analysing the policy challenges that these increased flows placed on the U.S. and regional governments.

Rosenblum also makes recommendations on policies to the United States, Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to better manage child and family migration processes today and in the future.
