(CNN) – Today, 40 undocumented immigrants, 18 mothers and 22 children, are back in the country of Honduras, after being apprehended trying to cross the United States border.
They were sent home yesterday on a plane, by the Department of Homeland Security.
Forty is a small number compared to the more than 50,000 undocumented minors that have flooded the U.S. border since October.
Now, Breitbart News is citing a leaked report from the El Paso Intelligence Center that says these undocumented immigrants may not actually be running from the violence in Central America, but towards the promise of some sort of amnesty.
Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus and The New York Times' Peter Baker discuss the border crisis, and the politics of former Vice President Dick Cheney, in the video above.
