A Snapshot of Children on the California-Mexico Border found that Latino children in California’s two border counties, San Diego and Imperial, are less likely to be poor than those in neighboring states’ border counties; however, their poverty rate is still four times higher than that of their non-Latino white counterparts. This report, produced by Children Now, is part of a new four-state report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation that provides a picture of how all children along the U.S.-Mexico Border are faring, comparing California, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona.
