Gov. Bobby Jindal will travel to the Texas-Mexico border Monday to examine the immigration crisis involving unaccompanied minors from Central America more closely. It is estimated that more than 52,000 children -- mostly from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras -- have arrived in southern Texas.

"Jindal will travel to Texas to get a firsthand look at the crisis on the U.S.

border and hear from officials on the ground dealing with the situation because of the lack of federal action," said Shannon Bates, a spokesperson for the governor.

Jindal will take a helicopter ride along the border and boat tour along the Rio Grande River, according to Bates. He is joining a scheduled trip to the border arranged by Louisiana House Speaker Chuck Kleckley and State Police Col.
