US asks Central America to do more on illegal immigration

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence has told leaders of three Central American countries that the U.S. is ready to do more to help their economies if they make a greater effort to fight illegal immigration.

Pence addressed President Juan Orlando Hernandez of Honduras, President Jimmy Morales of Guatemala and Vice President Oscar Ortiz of El Salvador as he opened a conference in Washington on Thursday.

Hernandez replied he would like more certainty about what to expect from the United States, because the funds requested by the Trump administration are less than the money allocated in previous years.

The Trump administration proposed $460 million in assistance last year, 30 percent less than what was approved in 2016 under President Barack Obama.
