From Los Angeles CBS:
The first lady of Honduras discouraged citizens of her country from attempting to cross the US-Mexico border illegally and pledged to address the problems that led them to flee.
“Stay in the country and let’s look for solutions to support you,” Ana García Carías, the wife of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández said on Monday.
García Carías made the comments after touring an immigration processing center in McAllen, Texas, with members of a Honduran government child migrant task force that she leads. The first lady has visited shelters for migrants in the US and Mexico before; this visit marked her first since the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policy took effect.
