Central American adults with children returned to country of origin

Washington, DC - Yesterday, a group of adults with children who recently crossed the border were returned to Central America. As President Obama, the Vice President, and Secretary Johnson have said, our border is not open to illegal migration and we will send recent illegal migrants back.

We expect additional migrants will be returned to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in the coming days and weeks, based on the results of removal proceedings or expedited removal. These returns are a result of the President's direction to surge resources such as immigration judges and asylum officers to process these cases more quickly.
