Tens of thousands of children have been detained at the U.S.-Mexico border this year, most of them from Central America. One reason why is the epidemic of violence in Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala, with gang-related murder—particularly of young people—an increasingly common occurrence. In El Salvador, for example, 38% of those murdered are between the ages of 15 and 24.
