Topic: Immigration and it’s Roots in  Free Trade Policy and Inequality in El Salvador

The rate of poverty is great in El Salvador.   Free trade policy has increased the crush on small farmers and others. It is difficult for people to migrate to the US, but their impetus is poverty. Ironically, this is perpetuated by neo liberal policies directed and implemented by the United States.
