(Washington, DC) -- President Obama will discuss the southwest border crisis with Central American leaders today. Obama will host a White House meeting with the presidents of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Tens of thousands of migrants from those three countries have poured over the U.S. border in recent months and many are unaccompanied children. Meanwhile, Republican House Speaker John Boehner is accusing the White House of seeking billions of dollars without having a good plan to solve the southwest border crisis. Boehner says the White House does not appear to be committed to reversing a 2008 law which slows down deportations of Central American migrant children.
