a bottle of milk and more than anything because of the sun and dehydration. the dad are you ha, the groups leaders say they hope media coverage of the journey will bring attention to a worsening migrant crisis. playing out across latin america. it's been a long day of walking and migrants are taking a break from the intense heat. in the weeks law river, it's going to be a short break because it won't be long before the group gets back on the road. this may be the largest group of migrants to leave southern mexico so far this year, but it's only a small fraction of those who make their way toward the u. s. southern border every year. manuel it up a low al jazeera she up as mexico are now to rob reynolds in los angeles. so robert, is there hope for any agreement on migration with many of the country's leaders missing from this summit and an empty looking scene behind you as well. i have to say, well, yes,
3:05 am
you're right carrie. this is the press filing center for the summit. 23 nations represented. perhaps the summit organizers thought that more media would show up. perhaps the media is out having dinner in los angeles somewhere. i don't know right now, but in regards to your question about migration, the bite administration has taken an approach to stemming migration that is more addressing as they say, the root causes of migration. so with regard to that, president biden will give a speech scheduled to begin just a few minutes from now, in which we'll talk about a new plan for economic rebuilding and revitalization. more private business investment in the region shoring up. so supply chains in the region, helping with health care, he wants to train 500000 doctors and other health professionals over the next 5 years. the idea behind all this and more is to gradually and over time,

3:07 am
this. why? because the by the administration decided not to invite the leaders of cuba, nicaragua, and venezuela thing, those countries are anti democratic and they don't have a place at the table here. that turns out to created more of a storm probably than the administration was counting on. and the fact that these, these nations snubbed the regions long time superpower is perhaps a sign of how much u. s. influence has waned in the region and how, how little trust remains between the u. s. and some of the countries in the region . so rounding back around to your question about a, an agreement on migration. kerry, i don't think that that's you. i don't think you're going to see some kind of an ironclad agreement here, especially with the absence of like the president of mexico for example. but you will see some progress. the white house insists towards actual concrete progress
