As net immigration from Mexico has dropped to near zero, it has been replaced by a surge in immigration from Central America, notably Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. And many of these new immigrants are children. Why are Central American children enduring hardships and risking death to come to this country? Our guests this week are both Arizona natives who have significant experience in Central America. Earl de Berge is a Phoenix native and businessman who has spent nearly half of his time over the last 30 years living in Guatemala. Terry Greene Sterling is an award-winning Phoenix journalist who recently completed an assignment in Central America for Newsweek.
If you want to understand the reasons behind this latest border surge in immigration, listen in. Sunday 5-6 p.m.
