Impact of Mexico's immigration policy on the migrant crisis

President Obama sent a request to Congress yesterday for nearly $4 billion to stem the wave of Central American children and families attempting to cross into the U.S. from Mexico.

The crisis at the U.S. Mexico border is only part of the problem. The women and children who are attempting to reach the U.S. have already made one border crossing — from their Central American home countries into Mexico across its southern border.

Gustavo Mohar is a former senior immigration official for the Mexican government. He joins Take Two to talk about how Mexico's deals with immigrants from Central America.
