Winner of the 2020 @TheFolio Prize Prize. #LostChildrenArchiveby @ValeriaLuiselliis an incredible story of loss and sacrifice. The story centres the real treacherous journeys child migrants make crossing the U.S. border from central America. Out now.
The #coronavirus pandemic's erosion of global economic growth has hit emerging markets especially hard, including those in Latin America, where a limited and depleting fiscal armory has left central banks scrambling to find new tools.
You want to fix immigration, ? Don’t go to the border. Go across it. Go see the violent conditions families are fleeing in Central America. Then convene leaders from Mexico and Central America to find long-term solutions. That’s compassion. That’s leadership.
I’ve traveled and worked in Haiti, and across Africa and Central America. The countries the president described with his epithet do not exist. Some thoughts as we remember those lost in Haiti eight years ago today:
While unlawful migration to U.S. from Central America is caused by real crisis,the migrant “caravan” was manufactured by supporters of a radical agenda who are using poor & desperate people to try & embarrass & undermine the U.S. in the region. But it’s going to backfire on them.
