Presidents of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras will meet with Obama on Friday to look for ways to curb a record-breaking exodus of Central American children, fleeing to the United States to escape violence and poverty. Since October, more than 57,000 unaccompanied children have been detained at the U.S.-Mexico border, most of them from Central America, and double last year’s count. “We need support for successful reintegration into work and schools and to keep track of these individuals and families so they don’t try again to immigrate to the United States,” Honduran Foreign Minister Mireya Aguero told local radio.
