By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The United States special envoy Ricardo Zúñiga to the Northern Triangle countries of Central America says that the United States has not reached any border security agreements with Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras said Guatemala daily Prensa Libre on Wednesday.
However, Zúñiga said that there is consensus on working together to alleviate irregular migration.
Prensa Libre said that in this manner the special envoy Zúñiga cleared the air regarding the announcements made by White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki who on Tuesday said that the United States had reached agreements with Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala to deploy troops to their borders.
Zúñiga told a House of Representatives Subcommittee hearing in Washington today that no agreements on border security had been reached. The hearing by the Subcommittee that deals with the Western Hemisphere, Civilian Security, Migration, and International Economic Policy was called to review the United States renewing its commitment to addressing the root causes of migration from Central America.
Zúñiga said the United States had a longstanding commitment to Central America but added that conditions in Central America have worsened over time. He said that while cooperation with Central America has centered on security, prosperity, and governance, the Biden administration is concentrating on governance because that affects the other two.
