US to deport undocumented Central American children: Kerry

PANAMA CITY: US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday that Washington would work with Central American nations to address the root causes of an immigration crisis, but he kept up the Obama administration’s tough message that undocumented children would be deported.“We obviously understand people who want to do better, and who look for a better life,” he said at a meeting with leaders from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, the countries from which tens of thousands of children have fled to the United States in recent months.“But at the same time, there are rules of law, and there is a process and there is false information that is being spread about benefits that might be available to these young people who are looking for that better life,” he said.Kerry was in Panama for the inauguration of the country’s new president, Juan Carlos Varela, but he combined the trip with meetings to address a crisis that is straining US resources and roiling partisan tensions in Washington over immigration.Kerry met with El Salvadoran President Salvador Sanchez Ceren and Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina.
