Central American leaders to meet with Obama over influx of young migrants at US-Mexico border

President Barack Obama is summoning Central American leaders to the White House to discuss the influx of young immigrants from their countries to the U.S.
Obama will host presidents of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador for meetings Friday. Central American leaders met a day earlier with lawmakers who are considering Obama's requests for emergency funds and additional authority to send unaccompanied children back home more quickly.
Those lawmakers appear unlikely to resolve their differences before leaving Washington late next week for an annual recess.
More than 57,000 minors have arrived since October, mostly from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.
