This is the April 30, 2015 hearing on "Migration Crisis: Oversight of the Administration's Proposed $1 Billion Request for Central America," held before the Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Jeff Duncan: "According to the administration, this funding would support the U.S. strategy for engagement in Central America to promote prosperity, security, and good governance. It would also assist the Central American governments in implementing their Alliance for Prosperity plan. These efforts aim to address the massive influx of migrants we saw at our Southwest border last summer in which over 68,000 unaccompanied children sought admittance to the United States, 75 percent who are from the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, also known as the Northern Triangle area. As a result of this migration crisis, U.S. engaged in media campaigns to discourage migration, conducted law enforcement operations to dismantle human smuggling networks, and created a new in-country refugee parole processing pilot program to provide a safer way for children and their parents to migrate in the United States." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Scott Hamilton, William R. Brownfield, Paloma Adams-Allen, Alan D. Bersin, and Kenneth E. Tovo.
