Reducing the urge to flee in Central America

This column makes the case that reducing violence and improving public safety in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras will do much more to ease the immigration pressure at the U.S. border than the approach adopted by the current administration, which emphasizes building a wall and cutting foreign aid. That approach “demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding of current migration at the southern border. These policies are likely to increase human trafficking, decrease U.S. security, hurt the economy, and exacerbate underlying drivers of migration.”
