1. There is no “lax enforcement” on the U.S./Mexico border.

2. The migration of children and families didn’t just start recently.

3. The recent increase in the numbers of child migrants is not just a response to gang violence, although this is the most-cited cause in U.S. media coverage.

4. The failure of Central America’s economies is largely due to the North American and Central American Free Trade Agreements.

5. When governments or people have resisted NAFTA and CAFTA, the United States has threatened reprisal.

6.  Gang violence in Central America has a U.S. origin.

7.  Moreover, U.S. foreign policy in Central America has actively led to the growth of gang violence there.

8. Kids looking for families here are looking for those who were already displaced by war and economic crisis.
