Central American leaders want Washington



Leaders of the Central American nations at the other end of the U.S. border crisis came to Washington on Thursday to discuss the response and placed much of the blame on the United States

The Obama administration acknowledged Thursday that it is weighing a proposal to allow hundreds of Hondurans to enter the United States after applying for refu*gee visas in their home country. A senior White House official emphasized that the proposal is one of many policy options being considered and that no decision has been made on that specific proposal.

The proposal, if ever implemented, would be a relatively modest response given the scale of the problem: The initiative would provide fewer than 2,000 refu*gee visas to young Hondurans in the first year of what officials described as a pilot program. The New York Times first reported on the potential program, saying it could cost $47 million over two years.

But in an interview with The Post, Molina said that proposals to boost border patrols are shortsighted and do not address the real problem.

“If they want to attack the root of the problem, I think that they need to think about making investments in countries like Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras,” he said, adding later: “With just 10 percent of the money that you’re investing on the U.S. border, it could be spent at minimum in the three countries and I’m confident that it would be much more profitable than investing it on border security or border control with Mexico.”

Oh, brother, just some more propaganda. When is the current Administration going to put its collective foot down and say NO MORE? Just like the proverbial camel nosing into the tent, this will balloon, much like the 1987 Amnesty.

All taxpayers should be sick of this hand-wringing, and for those who aren't, go right ahead and support these not-so-little darlings. I can't do it.

Uh; Honduras and so on, pass the collection plate around your fellow LatAm countries.

I'm real sick and tired about how the US did this and did that wrong in LatAm. Many of that place's problems are "Acts of God".

Like we sic'ed Hurricane Mitch on Honduras 15 years ago. Sheesh!

How would this prevent criminals and terrorists from trying to enter our country illegally?
