The humanitarian crisis at the US-Mexico border continues, as child migrants from Central America cross into the United States by the thousands. We ask if US immigration policy is playing a role in enticing these kids to head north, and we meet two young Guatemalans who say they had no choice but to make the dangerous journey. Also, we hear the story of a Salvadoran girl trying to find her way in America. And the tale of a nanny from Paraguay who looks forward to reuniting with her son, but does he share the sentiment? Also, we find out how superhero stories are really about the immigrant experience. And we learn the not-so-obvious difference between ‘hospice’ and ‘hospicio'.
