This is the September 25, 2019 hearing on "U.S. Policy in Mexico and Central America: Ensuring Effective Policies to Address the Crisis at the Border," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. From the opening statement of James E. Risch: "Today the committee meets to review measures taken by Congress and the Administration to reduce illegal migration flows from Central America. There have been growing concerns about the changing nature of illegal immigration flows arriving at our southwest border, as we all know. The uncontrolled arrival of and illegal entry of immigrants, including unaccompanied minors and/or adults traveling with children, exposes vulnerable populations, especially women and children, to unspeakable dangers. Only human traffickers and other unscrupulous criminals benefit from this unresolved situation. Transnational criminal organizations target and exploit immigrants along the journey north which in turn fuels the violence and insecurity from which they flee." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Kirsten D. Madison and Michael G. Kozak.
