Migration in Central America

by Dinorah Azpuru, Violeta Hernández

Magnitude, Causes and Proposed Solutions

For decades Central Americans have been drawn to the United States. Whereas civil wars and dictatorships caused migration in the past, today’s – also irregular – influx of people remains steady mainly for economic reasons and due to family reunions. This raises the question of responsibility of the countries of origin. Simultaneously, immigration has gained a more prominent spot on the domestic agenda of the U.S. The presidential elections 2016 are already on the horizon.
