What led to the immigration crisis?

There are no easy answers when it comes to ending America's immigration crisis. There is little certainty about what will happen to the flood of unaccompanied children flooding across the border. Ed Lavandera looks at what's happening to the children in limbo.

Why it is so difficult to repeal the law that allows these children to apply for asylum? Anderson discusses this with Dan Restrepo, who was President Obama's top advisor on Latin American affairs and Senior Political Analyst David Gergen.

    Following the wars waged by governments in Guatemala, El Salvador, and other countries near Africa or in Africa to hack to death at will, those young mothers with children made from a man who has been killed, or simply abandon them for a new wife as is the norm in these societies, along with elderly who have no goods to trade for their safety – are being slaughtered even today. If I were a mother and I found a route for safety for my children, I would give them an address in America (even if it was one made up – to serve the child's hope and faith – and send them on the safe path to the greatest country in the World. Sometimes, we see the mother with the children. Way to go moms! Americans are seeing difficulties of their own. Even when our lot is full, we will find a way to help these frightened for hopeful immigrants. It is the only American thing to do.
