Since 2014 the U.S. has seen an exponential increase of Central Americans arriving at its borders seeking refuge. Thousands are fleeing violence and the inability of their governments to protect them. USCRI is working hard to advocate for U.S. policies that are humane and protect Central Americans. Along with our advocacy, USCRI Centro-América opened its doors in San Salvador, El Salvador in 2014 to provide on-the-ground assistance to repatriated children.
