To solve the Central American refugee influx, and any of the refugee migrations across the globe, requires an inclusive approach.  In other words, countries need to work together.

 

All aspects of immigration, after all, are not only local, but also global in nature.

 

Let me add a side comment to this article. Some pressure needs to be placed on smugglers.

 

The coyotes guiding Central American refugees are snake oil salesmen. Based on my interviews with refugees, they part with $4,000 to pay their guides, at minimum, per person. (Imagine what it takes to earn $4,000 in Central America.) "The guides" tell the refugees that they'll get into the U.S. due to their situation. They do not tell them that staying here is not the same as getting into the U.S. They do not tell them that staying here will require a court hearing, an immigration trial, detention, and possible deportation back to their country.

 

Reduce their influence, and the migration is likely to slow down.
