    Central America.

    From USA Today:

    Why are so many children crossing now?

    Gang violence in El Salvador and in urban areas of Guatemala has escalated dramatically in recent months since a weak truce among rival gangs has evaporated, said Elizabeth G. Kennedy, a Fulbright scholar reached Monday in San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador.

    "Half of them are fleeing for their lives," she said.

    Kennedy, investigating the causes of child migration, has interviewed more than 400 child migrants. For many, Kennedy said, "their decision is: Do I face possible death in migrating or sure death in staying?"

    The gang violence "particularly affects youths," said Alison Ramirez, who works on a U.S.-funded violence-prevention project in El Salvador and who frequently visits Honduras and Guatemala. Questions surround surge in migrant kids left at border

    So why are parents leaving them to fend for themselves? What's that called ? Oh yes, abandonment.

    But now they are the USA's responsibility?

    No, these children are NOT our responsibility; they are their parents' and their governments' responsibilities. And they didn't make it to Mexico on their own, I don't think.

    Here's one point I ponder: Under what circumstances would I allow my teenaged daughter to travel out of the country and unescorted?

    The Governors are the commander and chiefs of their National Guard.
