Jessica Brown, a Sociologist with the University of Houston Center for Immigration Research and Christine Kovic, an Associate Professor of Anthropology and Cross-Cultural Studies at the University of Houston-Clear Lake examine the border crisis that has caused the influx of nearly 50,000 child immigrants at detention centers along the Texas-Mexico border.
