The administration is considering creating a pilot program giving refugee status to young people from Honduras. The plan would screen youths in their home country to determine whether they qualify and would be limited to Honduras but could be expanded to other Central American countries. Under the in-country screening program , the legal standard for youths to qualify for refugee status would remain the same as it is for those who seek the status after arriving in the U.S.
