Guatemalans began fleeing to the United States during the three and one-half-decade long Civil War (1960-1996), and today, child migration fueled by a desire to escape from violence is still very prevalent.

Twenty-four percent of migrants are from Guatemala , a country that has one of the world’s top murder rates. Migration is very dangerous; many are injured, and gang-violence is common along the journey. In areas such as the Tierra Blanca, gangs kidnap people, demand money, and threaten death, and then pose as children’s relatives.
