The U.S. is reportedly experiencing illegal immigration at the highest rates since 2007, with significant increases in the number of unaccompanied minors. It is these child migrants who are the subject of Valeria Luiselli’s book “Lost Children Archive.” Luiselli talks to Jeffrey Brown about her experience helping child asylum seekers, balancing truth and fiction and "political violence."
