Washington Post editorial sees Central America asylum issue for children still to be acute

The Washington Post has weighed in on the asylum crisis with an editorial Wednesday August 5, 2015, p. A16, “A family crisis: Detaining young asylum-seekers in camps is unsustainable”, link here with online title more blunt, “confining asylum-seeking children”.

There is talk of a compromise over what looks like a two-week waiting period.
Children can be released to “relatives” or “state-licensed programs” or “legal guardians”.  It is the latter that sounds controversial.  Is that what they would be looking for? 
Churches are still quite determined to run mission programs in Central American countries, even El Salvador, which sounds like the most dangerous.
