How should the US respond to the rise in Central American youth migrants entering its borders? Record a video comment: http://ow.ly/z48tH or/and leave your thoughts in the comments section below. Read more: http://ow.ly/z48wV

On Monday, July 14 at 19:30 GMT:

Should Central American child migrants in the United States be treated as refugees? Of the 52,000 unaccompanied children apprehended since October at the US southern border, most say they are escaping poverty and violence. The UN is now pushing for them to have refugee status, which may force the United States to accept more people as asylum seekers.

Two hundred Ghanaian World Cup fans in Brazil are asking for asylum, a move that has drawn scepticism and ridicule. The asylum-seekers argue they are fleeing from "violent conflicts between different Muslim groups" in Ghana. These fans entered Brazil on tourist visas and their requests are being prepared by the Roman Catholic Church's Migrant Support Center.
'Black Stars' supporters' asylum bids in Brazil prompt mixed reactions online.

Story
Tagline
The Stream is a social media community with its own daily TV show on Al Jazeera English.
Introduction
The Stream is a new phenomenon – a web community with its own daily show on Al Jazeera. The Stream taps into the extraordinary potential of the increasing power of social networks to disseminate news. Individuals have now become an integral part of the news information network through their ability to publish information and share opinions on events as they take place. 

The viral nature of social networks allows for such information to spread and multiply rapidly. While these developments have the potential to generate more heat than light, to a broadcaster like Al Jazeera, they are also a huge opportunity to reach news in places and at levels until now impossible. 

The Stream is a super-aggregator of these online sources, seeking out both untold stories and new, ground level takes on stories in the mainstream.
