Dear Colleague:

As the United States faces a humanitarian crisis at its southern border, we must reaffirm and restore our commitment to provide aid to our southern neighbors in the Northern Triangle.

Please join me in recognizing the impact of U.S. support in reducing corruption, crime, and drug trafficking in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras. The resolution also recognizes that U.S. aid has spurred economic development and job growth in the Northern
Triangle. Cutting funding for various preventative programs is not the answer.  

Cutting foreign aid will undo the progress that has been made within the region and will make the root causes of migration greater, which in turn will force even more individuals to flee their home country. We must ensure that the United States remains committed
to helping individuals in need.

If you have questions, or would like to be an original cosponsor, please contact Sheresh Khan with Rep. Correa at
Sheresh.Khan@mail.house.gov

Sincerely,

 

J. Luis Correa

Member of Congress
