WASHINGTON – The Biden administration Thursday laid out a series of plans tackling economic insecurity, corruption and other factors in Central America to mitigate migration from the region to the United States.
The plans include addressing economic insecurity and inequality, corruption, promoting human rights, and combating violence in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.
The plans are part of Vice President Kamala Harris’ efforts to address and mitigate migration from the Northern Triangle region.
Harris, who was appointed to address the root causes of migration in March, visited Guatemala and Mexico in June where she enacted several programs as part of the administration’s strategy. During her trip in June, she announced an Anticorruption Task Force and an anti-trafficking and anti-smuggling initiative.
