The Obama administration last week announced a series of modest, but sensible, steps to respond more humanely to the influx of migrants from Central America.
The most significant is an expansion of a program designed to allow children who are in danger in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala to apply for refugee status from their home countries if they have a parent living legally in the United States. Under the new rules, those who are granted that status will be allowed to immigrate to the United States with unmarried siblings who are over 21 and a related caregiver, such as a grandparent.
The administration also said that Costa Rica had agreed to serve as a temporary home for up to 200 refugees who face imminent danger while their cases are being processed.
