VP Joe Biden heading to Central America to talk illegal immigration
Vice President Joe Biden is heading to Central America to try to stop the flow of undocumented children coming into the United States through Mexico.
Administration officials say Biden will meet with the Presidents of Guatemala and El Salvador, as well as a senior official in the Honduras government during his trip. He's expected to discuss President Obama's Deferred Deportation Rule which was enacted last year.
There's a perception that all young immigrants who make it to the U.S. illegally are eligible for the program, but they're not. They're still subject to deportation. There's been a rising tide of minors illegally crossing into the U.S. in recent months.
Border officials estimate as many as 60-thousand will enter the country this year alone. In addition to Central America, biden will also make stops in Columbia and the Dominican Republic.
