The only way to really slow the flow of migrants coming to the U.S. unlawfully from Central America is to help fix what's pushing them out of the most violent countries on earth. Finally, the U.S. is doing something right in Central America--helping to fund efforts to reduce violence. Pastor Daniel Pacheco is leading the effort to cut violence in one of the worst neighborhoods in Honduras. He puts himself in the line of fire to help bring peace to his neighborhood. He needs our help.
