At The Other End Of The Migration Line In El Salvador

Kate Sheehy

Buses with migrant adults and unaccompanied children arrive from Mexico to San Salvador a few times a week.

The fate of children in El Salvador is a focus of the Fronteras Desk this week.

Senior Field Correspondents Jude Joffe-Block and Kate Sheehy are in El Salvador, reporting on the issues surrounding the migration of children from that country to the United States. They’ve been speaking to deported migrants and their families.

Sheehy went to a government-run migrant receiving center in San Salvador, where kids who get caught in Mexico arrive by bus a few times a week.

The Salvadoran government said it's trying to reduce the number of kids leaving the country.

Kate Sheehy is very happy to find herself back with Fronteras: The Changing America Desk as a Senior Field Correspondent in Tucson. Sheehy thinks being a reporter is the most amazing job because no other profession allows you to learn about a variety of subjects and provides the chance to meet people from different walks of life.
