Mexico has been deporting record numbers of Central American children in recent months, according to a new study by the Pew Research Center.
Mexico deported more than 3,800 unaccompanied minors from October 2014 to February 2015, a 56 percent increase over the same period the previous year. That has contributed to the significant drop in the number of unaccompanied children crossing into the U.S. since last fall.
Here & Now's Robin Young talks to Jens Manuel Krogstad, a writer and editor at Pew Research Center who focuses on Hispanics, immigration and demographic trends, about what's behind the increase, and what the impact has been.
