Barack Obama

Will meet Central American leaders

19 Jul, 2014

The White House announces Obama will meet next week with President Otto Perez Molina of Guatemala, President Juan Orlando Hernandez of Honduras, and President Salvador Sanchez Ceren of El Salvador to discuss the immigration crisis at the US-Mexico border. Nearly 60,000 children, most unaccompanied, from Central America have crossed the U.S. border since the beginning of the year.

The four leaders and Vice President Biden will discuss how to reinforce our ongoing collaboration to stem the flow of undocumented migrants from Central America to Mexico and the United States. This will include discussion of how the United States and Central American governments are cooperating to promote safe, legal, and orderly migration between our countries in a spirit of shared responsibility, including with respect to the return of family units, which began this week for all three countries.
