Are these children and families illegally here?

No. The only way for people from Central America to seek asylum in the United States is to enter the country and ask for it. If a child or family has entered and asked for asylum with a Customs and Border Patrol officer, they are following the both international and US law. They are put into immigration proceedings to must provide a defense to why they should not be returned to their home country.
