President Obama is meeting today with the presidents of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, the three countries that have been the source of the recent surge in child migrants to the United States.

They're set to discuss what can be done to stem the flow of unaccompanied children across the border. Michael Shifter, president of the Inter-American Dialogue, joins Take Two to discuss what may come out of the talks.
