De 2014 a 2015, hubo un aumento del 91% en las solicitudes de asilo presentadas en Estados Unidos por solicitantes originarios de los países del Triángulo Norte de Centroamérica (TNCA), con casi 50,000 peticiones registradas en 2015. Desafortunadamente, desde 2014, han llegado a Estados Unidos decenas de miles de menores no acompañados y separados provenientes del TNCA (más de 50.000 en 2014). En 2016, el número de llegadas familiares ha sido el mayor registrado, con más de 70,000 familias. Debido a que la violencia en la región aumenta, no hay indicios de que los flujos de refugiados disminuyan.

From 2014 to 2015, there was a 91% increase in asylum requests lodged in the United States by applicants from the Northern Triangle of Central America (NTCA) countries, with nearly 50,000 applications in 2015 alone. Worryingly, since 2014, tens of thousands of children from the NTCA have been arriving unaccompanied or separated to the United States (with more than 50,000 in 2014). In 2016, the number of families arriving in the US has been the highest recorded so far, with over 70,000. As violence in the region increases, the flow of refugees is unlikely to abate.
