BBC News reports President Barack Obama is to meet Central American leaders to discuss the plight of the undocumented migrant children flooding across the U.S. border. The presidents of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador will meet at the White House on Friday. They are expected to explore a potential program that would give refugee status to youth from Honduras. More than 50,000 unaccompanied children have been detained trying to cross the southern U.S. border since October. It is the latest immigration effort embarked upon by the Obama administration, which requested $3.7 billion in emergency spending earlier this month to combat the crisis. The emergency funding request included money for the hiring of extra immigration judges, drone surveillance of the border, medical services and transportation costs, and expanding a border security task force in Central America.
