Undocumented and Unaccompanied

Listen in pop-out player

Children are crossing the US border with Mexico in record numbers - without the proper paper work, and without their parents. We find out what happens when they wind up facing deportation. We also hear how California is helping illegal immigrants get their driving licenses. We trace the roots of modern Mexican cuisine and meet the Wisconsinite who was once crowned Miss Tibet. Also in this edition, Americans who love football discuss who they are backing in the World Cup.

(Photo: A migrant teenage girl waits by the train tracks as she makes her way to the US. The girl had travelled with two men, but says that they abandoned her near the southern Mexican border when she became tired during an all-night walk.)
