What do the Central American countries Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras have in common with the United States?

An estimated six million people from these three nations currently live in the United States.

And not all of them legally.

Now, the election of Donald Trump, the candidate who ran on a platform of enforcing immigration laws, allowing border patrol agents to do their job – and building a wall at the southern border, has many of these immigrants alarmed.

But it turns out the governments of those countries are alarmed, too, but not out of genuine concerns about their native sons living far from home, but because so many of their citizens, here in the U.S. illegally, wire money back home – and the governments don’t want that gravy train to run dry.

Accordingly, the governments of the three are now warning their citizens living in the U.S. not to make any “hasty” moves that might draw attention to them from the new Trump administration and lead to their deportation.

This past week, the foreign minister of Mexico met with his counterparts from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, the three Central American countries often referred to as the “Northern Triangle,” to discuss not only their shared concerns about Trump’s well-known plan to deport illegals, beginning with those who have criminal records.

The discussion centered on reassuring their citizens living in the U.S. illegally with advice and help in avoiding deportation under the incoming Trump administration.

The countries released a joint statement that included plans to expand immigration services at Mexican and Guatemalan embassies within the U.S.

The illegals are urged to “stay calm, carry the necessary documents and approach their consulates for services and consular protection.”

In the meantime, the foreign ministers’ statement encouraged the Guatemalans, Salvadorans and Hondurans observe and respect U.S. laws – except, of course, the very first law they broke by entering without permission.

Apparently, it’s perfectly acceptable for those foreign governments to encourage their citizens to disobey U.S. law – as long as American money keeps finding its way to south to Central America.
