Ana Lopez, 10, stops for a moment while playing outside with Angelina Pascual, 9, and Maria Miguel, 5, outside the Pascual home in San Miguel Acatan. Children as young as 10 from this region are crossing the border alone, and it's not rare to find 12- and 13-year-old children traveling the Central American migrant corridor headed for the United States. Families are often happy to see their children make the trip to the United States in spite of the dangers.
