The White House summit will mark the first time since the influx erupted into public view two months ago that Obama has met with leaders of the countries where most of the minors are from. Presidents Otto Perez of Guatemala, Salvador Sanchez Ceren of El Salvador and Juan Orlando Hernandez of Honduras are expected to come with a joint proposal on easing the crisis, officials said. Hernandez said in a meeting with senior US lawmaker Nancy Pelosi that the problem, which has escalated in recent months, is “deeply rooted” in drug trafficking and the violence it has generated in his country.
