Washington threats to shut escape valve of Northern Triangle

Wednesday, July 24, 2019


New US measures to control immigration are risking the closure of an important escape valve for the economies of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, known as the Northern Triangle of Central America.

A new report indicates the US houses 3 million immigrants from the Northern Triangle and their remittances represent 20 percent of the GDP of both El Salvador and Honduras and 12 percent of Guatemala's, Efe reports.
