Child Migrant Crisis has Legal, Political Hurdles

WASHINGTON (AP) — A top Obama administration official says no one, not even children trying to escape violent countries, can illegally enter the United States without eventually facing deportation proceedings.

But Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson basically acknowledged Sunday, July 6, 2014 that such proceedings might be long delayed, and what to do with unaccompanied children crossing the border is a legal and humanitarian dilemma.

Johnson said the border is not open to illegal migration, and the administration is taking a number of steps to address it. But he told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the administration is looking at ways to create additional options for dealing with the children, in particular, that are “consistent with our laws and our values.”
