In-Country Processing in Central America: A Piece of the Puzzle. Migration Policy Institute. Faye Hipsman and Doris Meisner. August 2015.

The in-country refugee processing program launched in Central America by the Obama administration in December 2014 as a response to rising unaccompanied child migration may provide a legal, safe alternative to undertaking dangerous, unauthorized journeys to the United States, albeit a limited one. The report examines the Central American Minors Refugee/Parole Program, as well as the history and track record of prior U.S. in-country processing programs. [Note: contains copyrighted material].
