Reuters -TEGUCIGALPA - Honduran officials on Wednesday called for U.S. aid to Central America to reduce violence that has fueled a surge of child migration to the United States, with the foreign minister calling for a "mini-Marshall plan" to attack the broader underlying problems.
Honduran President Juan Hernandez said Washington should help Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras fight gangs with a plan similar to U.S. anti-drug programs in Colombia and Mexico, as well as funds to lift growth in the impoverished region.
Honduran Foreign Minister Mireya Aguero told the conference efforts to step up security at the U.S. border were not working and that U.S. aid would be better spent in Central America.
"It's much more practical for the United States to launch a mini-Marshall plan, as they did after World War Two, to create opportunities and really get to the root of the problem in Central American countries that is fueling migration," she said.
Named after top U.S. General George Marshall, the Marshall plan was a U.S. aid program to help rebuild shattered European economies after the destruction wrought by World War Two.

Well before any “mini Marshall plan” we’ll destroy your country. How’s that sound?
Yet another new world order mass flow of cash from us taxpayers to globalist monopolists.
“Give me your money or you’ll keep getting the kids”. I think I saw something similar in Blazing Saddles.
We've seen this movie.
The last time Honduras was in the news was when Obama sided against the will of the Honduran voters back in 2009.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
The foreign aid to Central American should be dependent on the population. As the population shrinks due to the citizens of those countries moving to the US, the aid to those countries should drop. This would be incentive to the countries to keep their citizens, rather than flushing these people North to be the problem of the US.
Underlying problems? All those countries have the same underlying problems. A few political elites have sized control and maintained a family focused multi-generational cleptocracy, like the Kennedy’s and Clinton’s here. We now have the exact same problem in the US. A Marshal Plan would be pissing money down a rat hole. Here the rat hole is green energy. But there it would just go straight into El Presidente’s bank account.
