Immigration reform in summer 2014 took a back seat to debate over what to do about women and children arriving on the Mexico-US border from Central America. After 15,000 arrived in May and June 2014, Central American police set up roadblocks to ensure that women and children leaving El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras have documentation showing that both parents approve the international travel of children. Bus companies were prohibited from selling tickets to unaccompanied children.
President Obama in June 2014 promised to take executive action before the end of summer to protect some unauthorized foreigners in the US. In September 2014, Obama delayed action on immigration until after November 2014 elections, citing the influx of Central Americans for "shifting the politics" of immigration reform.
