Over a thousand migrants from Central America are currently making their way toward the United States southern border.
Their goal? By all accounts it is to enter the U.S. illegally and seek asylum.
Let’s be clear, while we are certainly sympathetic to the security crisis plaguing many in Honduras, El Salvador, and other parts of Central America, allowing them to violate our immigration laws and create chaos on our border is not the answer.
Often ignored in the immigration debate is how these governments have failed to provide safe and prosperous countries for their own people. A great irony here is that the Trump administration has shown far more willingness to work with these Central American countries than previous administrations.
