Biden’s Plans for Latin America: End ‘Bully Dictating Policy’

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden admits it was a contrarian view in the Obama White House.

During its final years, when the administration was beset by North Korea’s nuclear arsenal, Russia’s belligerence in Ukraine and wars in the Middle East, Mr. Biden argued for tackling a predicament closer to home: the violence and poverty that was causing large numbers of migrants, many of them children, to flee from Central America.
It was an intractable problem, but one the United States could resolve, he said in his memoir, “Promise Me, Dad.”
“Of all the crisis spots around the world, I had come to believe that Central America held the best opportunity,” Mr. Biden wrote.
