      INTRODUCTION OF RESOLUTION SUPPORTING THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE

                                 ______
                                 

                          HON. J. LUIS CORREA

                             of california

                    in the house of representatives

                        Thursday, July 11, 2019

  Mr. CORREA. Madam Speaker, 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.
  We must recognize 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 
tum will force even more individuals to flee their home country. We 
must ensure that the United States remains committed to helping 
individuals in need.
