Immigration issue with minors complicated because of safety

The law was also meant to put a stop to the human trafficking of children. In some cases, children were being sent here to be sold to individuals for illegal activities. The law was a way of keeping track of the children and protect them from those who would victimize them.

However, the law is currently causing several other issues when dealing with the large influx of minor illegal immigrants. Because each child is guaranteed a hearing, it is causing a backlog of cases while they work through the system. It is also costing the federal government to feed and shelter these children. If more family members can be located, these children could become wards of their family members instead of the government, which would allow federal agencies to focus on the more problematic issue. For families who are embroiled in a family immigration issue, speaking to a competent legal professional may help a family stay together and start a new life here in the United States.
