Washington, August 24 (RHC)-- U.S. President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden met with Costa Rica's President Luis Guillermo Solis in Washington to discuss Central America and new steps to improve security and governance and protect vulnerable migrants.
The white House says that the two U.S. leaders commended Costa Rica for its leadership in setting up a “protective transfer arrangement” in partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the International Organization for Migration to provide temporary safe haven for up to 200 refugees at a time from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.
For his part, the Costa Rican president called on Washington to change its discriminatory immigration policy and abolish the so-called “Cuban Adjustment Act.”
