However, the U.S. Southern Border Ambassador Roberta Jacobson Roberta Jacobson warned that "neither this neither this announcement nor any of the opposite measures recommend that anybody, particularly youngsters and households with younger youngsters ought to make the damaging journey to attempt to enter the US in irregular style."
The CAM, which operated from 2014 to 2017, allowed youngsters from Central America to seek asylum in the U.S. before traveling to the border. Nonetheless, former President Donald Trump halted the program in 2017. His decision left stranded some 3000 minors who had already been authorized to travel.
On Wednesday, the authorities explained that the program would have two phases. First, they will reopen cases suspended by Trump's administration and reach parents to apply for their children. In a second phase, they will accept new applications.
