In the United States, the number of minors working under concerning conditions has alarmingly increased, exacerbated by the current migration crisis. Data from the Department of Labor indicate a rise in violations of child labor regulations, especially in high-risk sectors such as agriculture and manufacturing. 

In his interview with DNYUZ, Hector highlights that these minors are often employed in areas with dense concentrations of migrants, which directly affects their employment patterns in hazardous environments. 

This phenomenon underscores the urgency of implementing stricter controls and more effective supervision. It is suggested to strengthen the verification of sponsors, provide ongoing monitoring and support to the minors, and educate them and their families about their labor rights to prevent exploitation.
