The 2nd phase of so-called Central American Minors Program (CAM), created in 2014, enables children from these Northern Triangle nations to request their entry to the United States if they have a guardian with legal residence in the United States.

Former President Donald Trump finished off CAM program in 2017 on the grounds that it was a migration route created without Congress´ approval. However, current President Joe Biden restarted the program on March 10 ahead of constant arrival of unaccompanied minors to US border.

The State Department spokeswoman Jalina Porter on Tuesday told local press that present government has so far identified as many as 3,000 cases of parents expecting their children, and that´s why the MCA program was extended.

Meanwhile, two out of five US citizens disapprove the current administration’s response regarding unaccompanied migrant children´s arrival to the southern US border, according to a poll released in April.
