A comprehensive response to irregular migration and forced displacement in the Western Hemisphere

Launched at the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles, California in June 2022, the Los Angeles Declaration on Migration and Protection seeks to mobilize the entire region around bold actions that will transform our approach to managing migration in the Americas.

The Los Angeles Declaration is organized around four key pillars:

Pillar I: Stability and Assistance for Communities
Pillar II: Regular pathways for migration and international protection
Pillar III: Humane Migration Management
Pillar IV: Promoting a coordinated emergency response

The Los Angeles Declaration is on the White House website here.

Twenty-one countries have endorsed the Declaration so far, and many have made commitments towards the improvement of migration management in the region.

For more information, see the fact sheet published by the White House following the launch of the Declaration in June 2022, and the updated fact sheet the U.S. Department of State published following the first meeting at the Ministerial level that took place in October 2022 in Lima, Peru.
