President Obama and PM Barrow heading to Costa Rica

Barack Obama

Prime Minister Dean Barrow is heading to Costa Rica to join Central American presidents for a regional meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama. It is Obama’s second stop in the region; earlier today he arrived in Mexico City for meetings with President Enrique Pena Nieto. Top on that agenda was border security and trade matters, but immigration reform is a priority for both countries since Obama and Pena Nieto support normalizing the status of some six million Mexicans living illegally in the United States. Obama will move on to Costa Rica on Friday where he will be meeting with the Central American heads. Economic issues will be discussed as well as the security issues and immigration.

Dean Barrow

According to a recent report, ninety-nine thousand migrants from Central America were arrested in 2012 for attempting to enter the US illegally through the porous Mexican border. And it is estimated that due to the transnational drug trade, four of the six most violent nations in the world are in Central America. It is not known if P.M. Barrow will be having bilateral meetings with any Central American president. We do know, however, that Guatemalan President, Otto Perez Molina, will be in the line-up in Costa Rica.
