Earlier this year, President Obama requested $1 billion in assistance for the Northern Triangle countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to address the underlying factors of violence, poor governance, and lack of opportunity driving migration from the region. At the same time, the Northern Triangle governments developed a regional plan, “The Alliance for Prosperity in the Northern Triangle” to confront the increasing flow of emigration from the region.
As discussions regarding the Central American aid package continue in Congress, it is important to revisit the underlying issues behind the flight from the Northern Triangle. At this event, the guests will discuss the current situation in El Salvador and Honduras and expand on the ongoing challenges to security, transparency, and accountability that each of the countries face. We hope that you can join us for this timely discussion.
