Honduras seeks U.S. to curb child migration

Thursday, November 13, 2014


Honduras President Juan Hernandez wants the United States to invest billions of dollars to help curb the flow of illegal migrants from Central America, and said it will take much longer to stem the crisis without Washington's help.

"If we have to do it alone, it will take us more time. But if we can do it together, it can be quicker and better for everyone," he said.

Hernandez was in Washington for an InterAmerican Development Bank meeting with his counterparts from Guatemala and El Salvador as well as U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on ways to overcome violence and poverty largely fueling the exodus from their countries.
