It seems as though they have come out of no where, a surge in young (undocumented) immigrants, children, braving threats most of us could never imagine to reach the United States in hopes of refuge and opportunity.

Communities and authorities are scrambling to figure out how to respond.

What I have heard very little about is the risk to these children of exploitation and trafficking once they land on US soil. They are vulnerable targets.
