Jargon Watch: Northern Triangle

The term "Northern Triangle" refers to three countries in Central America: Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. The term was initially used to describe the countries' similar economic interests, but in recent years, "Northern Triangle" has become synonymous with violence. Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador are consistently ranked as the world's most dangerous countries not at war. Many people have been fleeing the region to seek asylum in the US. The term has appeared in the news recently as President Trump has announced a plan to cut aid to these countries.
