U.S. border crisis: Children fleeing violence

World Vision is marshaling resources in the United States and abroad to assist children and families caught in the growing humanitarian crisis along the U.S. border. The U.S. Government estimates that at least 60,000 unaccompanied children will be seeking to cross the border this year alone – a number that is also expected to double in 2015. How should we respond?
