Deal could allow US to send some asylum seekers back to El Salvador

The US and El Salvador signed an agreement on Friday that could prevent some asylum seekers from seeking refuge in the US, but that overall is designed to curb illegal migration by increasing security and economic opportunity in El Salvador, according to acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan and El Salvadoran Foreign Minister Alexandra Hill Tinoco.
