Roberta Jacobson, former assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs, will join the National Security Council under US President Joe Biden to oversee issues related to the US southern border.
As the Biden administration prepares to restore US leadership on the global stage, enhanced coordination with Latin America and the Caribbean on vital issues such as climate change, human rights, and a rules-based trading system beckons as a strategic opportunity. The president-elect, more than any recent occupant of the White House, is well placed to seize it.
In this article, we take a closer look at migration trends in three examples that showcase current trends: Central America, Venezuela, the Caribbean. We also take a look at specific recommendations to address migration.
What effect will the “safe third country” designation have on Guatemala?
How well will Mexico’s troop deployments work to reduce the flows of migrants to the United States?
What are the consequences of the Trump administration’s decision to cut off aid to Northern Triangle countries?
The U.S. president needs to keep cooperating closely with Mexico, steer clear of any military action in Venezuela and refrain from bullying his partners and allies in the region.
As the Honduran migrant caravan reaches Tijuana seeking to cross the border to the United States, important political and humanitarian controversies have sprung around Central American caravans.

Manuel Orozco analyzes the current trends in Central American immigration. Although it is a relatively new phenomenon, mostly dating from the late 1970s, its impact in the region and on foreign policy is quite significant.
On June 29, the Inter-American Dialogue hosted an event titled “Immigrant Families: Separation, Reunification, and Legal Challenges.” The conversation analyzed Trump administration’s May 2018 “zero tolerance policy.”
In January, 2018 the US government announced that it will not renew Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Salvadorans. This report will explore the consequences of this decision and offer several proposals for avoiding or mitigating the potential harm to Salvadorans currently protected by TPS.
Sending back 200,000 Salvadorans to an already strained region flies in the face of the objectives of the Alliance for Prosperity, and is a surefire way to worsen the social ills that lie at the root of the massive exodus to the United States. A chaotic Central America is a story with no winners except criminal syndicates.
