WASHINGTON — Mexico is proposing that the United States finance seven projects designed to boost the economies of three Central American nations whose poverty and violence now pushes desperate migrants to travel north. Mexican foreign minister Marcelo Ebrard told reporters Thursday after meeting with U.S. Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan that he plans to showcase the same proposal next week in Germany. Ebrard will meet Friday with President Donald Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan at the White House, where he expects to get an update on talks about the U.S. committing some $10 billion in development investments for Mexico and Central America. Earlier this week in Mexico, a U.N. commission presented a roadmap to boost development in Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua.
