Authorities in the Washington, D.C. region are concerned about a new influx of unaccompanied minors from Central America as another wave of thousands of young people cross the border with Mexico to enter the U.S. illegally.

Experts say hundreds of those young people are making their way to D.C., in what they say could be a replay of the surge that took place in 2014.
