Unintended Consequences for deportations in Central America

Today I read an article by Chris Kraul, Robert Lopez and Rich Connell. They discuss the problems in Central American caused by the deportation of thousands of young men from the U.S. Because of the disruption of their family lives in coming to the U.S. mostly as very young boys then being thorn apart by immigration law these boys join gangs for support and identity. Our domestic immigration laws are having an unintended foreign policy consequence. You can find the article at www.latimes.com Here is a quote from the article "4 Presidents Seek Help in Gang Battle ...Central American leaders say the groups pose a hemispheric threat, augmented by U.S. deportation of criminals".
