Honduran President: U.S. Needs to Clarify Immigration Policy
On Friday, the presidents of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras will speak with President Obama at the White House about the influx of Central American children into the United States. Tonight, Greta Van Susteren spoke to Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez about the border crisis.
He blamed a lack of security caused by drug trafficking between North and South America for part of the problem.
“Most of these children are coming from drug route – basically, 30 municipalities of our 298 municipalities. Obviously, this leads to a lack of opportunities, but since September until now it’s gotten out of hand,” Hernandez said.
He called on Central America, the U.S. and Mexico to join together in solving this humanitarian crisis.
The plan, Hernandez said, needs to be comprised of “economic recovery in Central America, reduction in violence, educational opportunities, and clarification of the migration policy language.”
