Three Migrant Children Die at Sea Trying to Reach US

Three Central American children died off the coast of Mexico on route to the United States. Prosecutors from the southern state of Chiapas said that at least three migrant children drowned after the boat they were in capsized in heavy rain. The children are believed to have drowned on Wednesday morning but their remains were not recovered until Thursday, when the waves washed their bodies ashore. Initial findings suggest as many as four children were traveling with their parents aboard a vessel provided by people smugglers.
The United States, which has adopted a hardline stance against irregular migration by people from Central America, has deported thousands of migrants from Honduras and El Salvador in recent months. Thousands of unaccompanied minors have braved the perilous journey to the United States.
