Central America: Improved Evaluation Efforts Could Enhance Agency Programs to Reduce Unaccompanied Child Migration
Kimberly Gianopoulos (au)
According to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the number of unaccompanied alien child (UAC) migrants apprehended at the U.S.-Mexican border climbed from nearly 28,000 in FY 2012 to more than 73,000 in FY 2014, with nearly three-fourths of those apprehended nationals of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Children from these three countries face a host of challenges, such as extreme violence and persistent poverty. Those who migrate can encounter even more dangers, such as robbery and abuse. This report reviews (1) U.S. assistance in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras addressing agency-identified causes of UAC migration; (2) how agencies have determined where to locate these assistance efforts; and (3) the extent to which agencies have developed processes to assess the effectiveness of programs seeking to address UAC migration. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
