7 Glimpses of Immigration Conflict in the U.S.

With immigration reform being put off until next year at the earliest, and with somewhere between 60,000 and 74,000 unaccompanied minors crossing the border illegally this year, America is divided over the humanitarian crisis taking place and the need for economic stability within the U.S. Protests have broken out at the border and in Washington D.C., with activists on both sides of the issue up in arms. Meanwhile, detainees are being held, processed, tried, and sent back to their native country, leaving the U.S. immigration system heavily strained and shorthanded, with Washington sending additional resources.
