    Washington, DC – Yesterday, the Trump administration announced that it plans to phase out the Central American Minors (CAM) refugee program during fiscal year 2018. The CAM program began at the end of 2014 under the Obama administration and provided in-country processing for vulnerable children fleeing violence and grave danger in their home country. The program, available in El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, allowed children to apply for refugee status or humanitarian parole in the United States. Only children with parents present in the U.S. with lawful immigration status were eligible. Further, children had to go through many screenings as part of the process in order to establish that they qualified for protection – in the form of refugee status or temporary parole – because of the danger they were facing. Access to parole through this program was terminated in August 2017.
