You understand the reason they left is that things were so dangerous and dire that they escaped. And now you’re sending them back? They’re trying to rationalize it by saying ‘Oh no, it will be safe’. You’re lying. There’s no safe way to do it.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has produced this map showing the hometowns of the nearly 35,000 unaccompanied Central American children it apprehended between October 1 and May 14.

According to the one-page document [PDF], Guatemalan child migrants are driven more by poverty, while Salvadoran and Honduran children are driven more by violence.


  We assess these reasons vary regionally. For example, many Guatemalan children come from rural areas, indicating they are probably seeking economic opportunities in the US. Salvadoran and Honduran children, on the other hand, come from extremely violent  regions where they probably perceive the risk of traveling alone to the US preferable to remaining at home.

EL SALVADOR GUERRILLA WAR DOCUMENTARY by Damon Corrie

Watch this documentary video below if you want to get a pretty good idea about what to expect in a Guerrilla War situation, it is one of the most wide ranging and comprehensive TRUE ‘reality TV” educational tools (for your mental preparation prior to taking the warpath) available.

In this documentary you will see how this little known ‘leftist’ Rebel movement in El Salvador existed, how some Americans helped the oppressed – while their government helped the oppressors, how the Catholic Church adherents of the very noble ‘Liberation Theology’ clergy in that country supported (and died) for what was essentially one of the most just causes of a predominantly Indigenous Amerindian War of Liberation AGAINST the rich upper ‘colonial- settler-descendant class’ ruling elites and their National Security Forces henchmen (often backed by the Government of the USA overtly AND covertly…..a fact we see in just about every country of the western Hemisphere)….and where the ‘colonial-settler-descendant-class’ is not directly playing the ‘ruling master’ role (as they still do in Latin America and North America) – it is always some other race they brought here and trained to live, think and act like them (perfect psychological clones) and replace them in oppressing us – the TRUE landlords of this Hemisphere. The only positive aspect to this later scenario is that the ‘Security Forces’ troops being used to oppress us in defense of the elites outside of Latin American countries are 99.9% of the time not usually people who look like us (unlike Latin America), so combat against them is actually easier to wage (in this ONE sense and in this one aspect) as infiltration into our ranks is harder for our enemies to achieve (they have to depend on traitors from our own race to help them).

Central American Children Humanize Their Struggle Before Congress

Three Central American Children testified before the Congressional Progressive Caucus in Washington D.C. on Tuesday July 29th, 2014.  The children were: Mayeli Hernández, 12, migrated from Honduras last year in July of 2013; Dulce Medina, 15, came from Guatemala five years; and Saúl Martínez, 15, from El Salvador, the most recent refugee to arrive in just April of this year. All of the children made their journey as unaccompanied minors. They shared their experiences of violence in Central America, their arduous journey through Mexico and into the United States, as well as the abuse and dehumanization they faced in U.S. immigration facilities upon arrival. Speaking directly to their time spent in the “ice-boxes” or unbearably cold holding cells without blankets or warm clothing, the children recounted how in some cases people would turn blue due to the slowing of blood circulation. Saúl Martinez had this to say, “Please don’t mistreat children the way your government has mistreated me. Finally, I want to ask you not to deport children like me because it’s very possible that you will deport them to violence and to their death.”

"Why Nicaraguan Kids Aren’t Fleeing to the U.S.”

San Diego radio station KPBS discusses Nicaragua’s absence from the unaccompanied Central American children debate. Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in Central America, has a difficult history of war and violence yet doesn’t have masses of children heading to the U.S.-Mexico border. This article attempts to find the reasons for the Nicaraguan exception from this humanitarian crisis. The piece suggests the lower rates of criminal activity, community policing, the successes of the Sandinista revolution, and the individual decisions of many Nicaraguans to forego the American Dream for work, advancement, and stability in neighboring Costa Rica.

El Salvador Part of a United Latin American Front Against Israel

El Salvador is one of five countries in Latin America, and the only one in Central America, to recall its ambassadors from Tel Aviv. El Salvador follows the example of Brazil, Chile, Ecuador and Peru who have done the same. It is worth mentioning that Cuba was the first Latin American country to sever ties with Israel in 1973. Venezuela and Bolivia both cut diplomatic ties with Israel in 2009. Argentina, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Uruguay have also condemned the Israeli assault but have not formally cut ties with the State of Israel. El Salvador, which has a sizeable Palestinian community living on its soil, continues to protest against Israel’s illegal military offensive in Gaza. The Salvadoran Ministry of External Relations recently stated, “This action is taken before the serious escalation of violence and implementation of indiscriminate bombing from Israel into the Gaza Strip that has killed children, girls, women and men.”
