Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said Honduran President Juan Hernandez would discuss the final details of Mexican aid during his next visit to his country next month, VOA radio reported.

The creation of jobs will further contribute to reducing the flow of refugees to Mexico, including to the United States, compared with other forced measures, Ebrard said.

Mexico has announced the provision of 30 million dollars for the same purpose as aid to El Salvador to fund a program to increase the areas planted with trees.

Earlier in March, the US President Donald Trump slammed Central American states in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, accusing them of receiving financial support from the United States without doing anything to stop illegal immigrants from reaching his country’s borders.

Trump also attacked Mexico for not doing anything to stop the influx of immigrants, even after Secretary of Homeland Security Christine Nielsen met with Mexican officials to discuss security issues.

“Mexico does nothing to help stop the influx of migrants to our country, they say and do not, and Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have taken our money for years and have done nothing, Democrats do not care about these bad laws,” Trump wrote in a tweet on his official Twitter page.

The camps are completely overburdened because of the large increase in the number of migrants. For the eight months between October 2018 and May 2019, CBP claims that more than 676,000 people have been picked up from Mexico to the United States for illegal border crossings.

This is about twice as many as in the same period a year earlier. Recently, CBP registered more than 100,000 illegal border crossings per month. Many of the migrants come from Guatemala, El Salvador or Honduras. Trump has declared a national emergency at the border.
