“Do the Right Thing”
Sonia Nazario visited The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to discuss the crisis of children from Central America crossing the border into the United States. Nazario is the author of Enrique’s Journey, the Go Big Read book from 2011-2012. Sonia shared her experiences from riding the freight trains and actually meeting and talking with the children about the horrors they face in their home countries. Sonia believes the children are refugees and that the United States needs to step up and “do the right thing.”

 Do you believe the children are refugees? Do you think that the U.S. should offer the children asylum? Watch the video below and share with us what you think.
