Release Date: 
December 29, 2020

“These humanitarian agreements demonstrate the Trump administration’s unwavering efforts to secure America’s borders from illegal entry by working closely with our regional partners,” said CBP Acting Commissioner Mark A. Morgan. “Without these agreements, we will likely see waves of attempted illegal entries similar to what we saw in 2019. Our collaborative approach with our partner countries will protect the American homeland from uncontrolled mass migration during a global pandemic while also allowing migrating Central Americans a safe place to seek protection closer to their homes.”
