Hundreds of children denied asylum at U.S. southern border

Hundreds of unaccompanied minors who are seeking refuge in the U.S. have been denied asylum despite laws protecting children traveling alone from speedy deportations. CBS News is the first to report the impact of the Trump administration's expulsion policy. CBS News immigration reporter Camilo Montoya-Galvez joined CBSN to explain how the administration was able to suspend protection for unaccompanied minors during the coronavirus pandemic and what happens to those children once they're turned away. He also discussed a California judge's decision to extend the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency's deadline to release detained families by 10 days.
