· The Archbishop of San Salvador on the treatment of migrant children to the United States ·

The Catholic Church in El Salvador has asked Mexico and the United States to respect the rights of Central American migrant children, victims of unscrupulous traffickers. The EFE news agency reports that the request was made through the words of José Luis Escobar Alas, Archibishop of San Salvador, on Sunday, 13 July, at a press conference after celebrating Mass in the Cathedral. He stated that this problem, “is not new but has now come to light” due to the dramatic increase in children illegally crossing the United States border. Between October 2013 and June of this year, U.S. Officials arrested more than 52,000 illegal unaccompanied minors, most coming from Honduras, El Salvador e Guatemala.
