By Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Monday that most unaccompanied minors flooding into the United States from Central America will not be allowed to stay as the Obama administration prepares to ask Congress for $2 billion to address the border crisis. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said most of the border-crossers would not qualify to stay in the United States. Those who possibly could get asylum are children who have been victims of domestic abuse. The strong warning came as the White House is expected to lay out on Tuesday what it wants in emergency funding from the U.S. Congress to deal with the flood of children.
