“It’s a problem Facebook has known about for many years.”Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said that the company prohibits "content that offers to provide or facilitate human smuggling. He added that Facebook permits content related to seeking asylum and that it had consulted with the United Nations on its content policies around human smuggling. The policies draw on the U.N. definition of human smuggling as “the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders” that doesn’t necessarily involve coercion or force. Since 2015, researchers and journalists have regularly identified pages dedicated to human smuggling on Facebook.

But when Sawyer tried to call her last month with the good news that she would be allowed into the United States, she couldn’t reach her – Jasibi had been kidnapped again. Biden has filled many key immigration advisory positions with high-profile migrant advocates, including some opponents of the Title 42 border restrictions. Since Biden took office, U.S. border authorities have recorded more than 300,000 expulsions under Title 42. U.S. officials have said the Title 42 border restrictions are partly needed to protect government workers. In recent weeks the United States began admitting asylum seekers whom migrant advocates had identified as being especially vulnerable in Mexico.

As the Biden administration sharpens its focus on Central America in its quest to stem migration, it is facing a region that has seen democratic and economic deterioration compounding long-term challenges. It’s a job Biden had as vice president, but conditions in the region have worsened since then. The Salvadoran president reportedly received a similar snub from the Biden administration when he made an unannounced trip to Washington in February. Biden administration officials have said that little of the $4 billion will go to the central governments, but rather to nongovernmental organizations and other private entities. Aside from the diplomatic obstacles, critics of U.S. aid to Central America say it hasn’t slowed migration in the past.

WASHINGTON — China is using Covid-19 vaccines to push its political and trade agenda across Latin America and the Caribbean, and the U.S. risks losing influence in the region without prompt action, lawmakers and experts say. China in recent months sent more than 165 million Chinese-made vaccine doses to Latin America and the Caribbean, accompanied by a concerted public relations campaign highlighting Beijing's role. Workers transport boxes of Chinese vaccines in Brasilia, Brazil, Jan. 18, 2021. In Latin America, Beijing persuaded three countries to abandon their diplomatic recognition of Taiwan since 2017: Panama, the Dominican Republic and El Salvador. Latin America and the Caribbean account for roughly one third of the global death toll from Covid-19.

The ruling party denies playing favorites and said such allegations are typical of opponents aiming to make President Juan Orlando Hernández look bad. The National Party captured 58% of the nation's mayor's offices in the most recent elections in 2017. Anduray said any instances of local officials favoring National Party supporters were isolated cases. The government aid was largely channeled to citizens identified in an internal party "census" as likely National Party voters, said Raúl Pineda Alvarado, a former National Party lawmaker. López said her job was to obtain contact information from likely party supporters to help mobilize turnout.

The interviews provide an anecdotal snapshot of the mood within border patrol and, as such, do not represent the views of all agents. “It is his fault.”The 97-year-old border patrol agency has been whipsawed by policy changes under Republican and Democratic administrations that have required them to frequently modify their approach to migrants they encounter at the border. Rosemarie Pepperdine, a border patrol agent working in Casa Grande, Arizona, is one of those who said she was considering taking early retirement. The border patrol wanted to use a police station to set up a command post to aid the search. But that was rejected by police, who according to Hall felt that was unnecessary because the border patrol had their own facilities.

Honduran president, in diplomatic shift, says he may open China office

Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez said on Tuesday the Central American nation, a long-standing diplomatic ally of Taiwan, could open a trade office in China in a bid to acquire coronavirus vaccines. Honduras does not have formal relations with China and is one of a group of Latin American nations with strong diplomatic ties to Taiwan, which Beijing considers part of its territory. If necessary, his government would open a trade office in China "because it is in the best interest of the Honduran people," he said in a televised speech. In order to buy Chinese vaccines, Hernandez said he would do as the Chinese had suggested and look for a "diplomatic bridge." He suggested Mexico, Chile, Argentina or El Salvador could help his nation acquire Chinese vaccines, and had also asked Taiwan to press the United States to help.

A woman in a long skirt climbs into the truckbed and begins to preach into a microphone: "You all are hoping to cross into the United States!" Rumors fuel hope among migrants that they will soon be able to enter the United States. But migrants say that is not enough to make them feel safe. Migrants began to camp on Feb. 18, the night before processing began for the MPP migrants, amid confusion about who exactly would be admitted to the country. "You stay quiet, but you live in fear," said Ana, a 21-year-old from Guatemala who is desperate to enter the United States to rejoin her father.

REUTERS/Jose Luis GonzalezThe United States this week will reunite four migrant families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border during the Trump administration, U.S. officials said, a small step toward fulfilling a campaign promise by President Joe Biden. The families will be allowed to enter the United States through an emergency process known as "humanitarian parole," Michelle Brane, who heads a Biden-created task force that aims to reunite separated families, told a call with reporters on Sunday. "In these cases that we're talking about this week, the children are in the United States and the parents are coming to join them," Brane said. Trump reversed the policy that summer amid an international outcry, but advocates and government watchdogs found separations began before the policy and continued after it. In some cases, parents were deported and children remained in the United States with other relatives or sponsors.

And the internal government assessment seen by Reuters showed Mexican security officials concluded Mexico’s improved child safeguards are among the factors encouraging migration. In Mexico, she quickly requested legal protections and then aimed to make her way to the U.S. border, she said. Mexico’s new law, along with Biden’s announcement that unaccompanied minors would be allowed to enter the United States, has drawn praise from human rights groups. Asked about the law, the U.S. State Department said Washington supports Mexico in working with international partners to implement its recent child protection reforms responsibly. A State Department official did not directly address the question of whether the United States regards the recent Mexican law changes as a factor in increased migration.
