Congressman Eliot Engel is part of Speaker Nancy Pelosi's bipartisan Congressional delegation visiting Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and then traveling to McAllen, Texas to see detention centers for migrants.
Congressman Engel, who represents the Pelhams, is chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and Energy & Commerce Committee.
“As our high-powered delegation begins our visit to the Northern Triangle, we look forward to strengthening our partnership to enhance regional security and stability, create greater economic opportunity, combat corruption and advance human rights to make it safer for people to thrive in their communities,” said Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “In our meetings with representatives from government, the judiciary, civil society, community and faith-based groups, the private sector and human rights organizations, we will renew our commitment to advancing our shared interests and to helping empower the people of the Northern Triangle to build a better future at home. We also look forward to honoring the cultural and family ties that connect our people and the enormous contributions that generations of immigrants from the region have made to the United States.”
