Honduran president travels to Washington for first meeting with Barack Obama. Top issue described as migration

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

The Honduran president, Porfirio Lobo, traveled to Washington where tomorrow he will meet with Barack Obama for talks on security and migration, including other issues.

Late last month, Lobo said he would be talking with Obama on migration issues, including a proposal to extend the Temporary Protected Status for the 70,000 Hondurans who live in the United States without documents.

Lobo had to wait two years before receiving the invitation from the White House. Most Honduran presidents have been invited during the first six months of their mandate, but Lobo’s visit has been delayed by the impact of the 2009 coup.
