Two girls watch a World Cup soccer match on a television from their holding area, where hundreds of mostly Central American immigrant children are being processed and held at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Nogales Placement Center on Wednesday, June 18, 2014, in Nogales, Ariz. The girls are among tens of thousands of immigrants who have flooded over the Southwest border this year, many unaccompanied children.
