Illegal immigrant children continue to go to Nogales

NOGALES - Central American children are on their way to the Nogales Border Patrol station.

They are not with their parents, so deporting them is complicated. Customs and Border Protection has stated it will deal with them on a case-by-case basis, prioritizing public safety and national security.

Rep. Raul Grijalva posted on his Facebook account Sunday, "Unaccompanied minors, some as young as 3 or 4, are crossing the border. Due to the high numbers, processing facilities are at capacity and children are being bused to Arizona. It is crucial for the administration to act quickly and deploy all resources necessary to keep these children safe and help reunite them with their families. As our nation works to resolve this humanitarian crisis, it serves as a call for Congress to act now on immigration reform."

The children will be given medical checkups, vaccinations and legal help. Then they will go to shelters in Oklahoma, Texas or California.
