     Child Migrants 
        According to the article “Children’s Migrants” related by ABC News “The invisible crisis small children crossing the US border on their Own". Honduras has become a significant part of the United States territory by sending illegal immigrants in the United States. 

 
More than 50,000 unaccompanied children captured by the border patrol across the southwest U.S border.




                            
     This is a complicated situation which is involved an urgent humanitarian problem. Because the children suffered inadequate treatment and they look like prisoners. They are sleeping on aluminum foil and insufficient of supplies.




       Children come from all over Central America trying to enter the United States without elders. Moreover, most of the children fled from poverty and violent crime in their country of origin. Feeding these children is the biggest challenge.
