Noemi Rojas and Dennis talk with Dr. Mark Lusk, UTEP department of social work professor, about his lifetime work looking into the lingering emotional states of immigrating children from various countries into the United States. Even if resilient, the children are subjected to untold, numerous indignities and various physical, sexual and emotional threats as they make their ways into the United States to search out their parents, family members and siblings, and to escape harsh punishment at the hands of their own governments.
