Please watch the interview of the president of El Salvador Nayib Bukele. He’s saying exactly what I’ve been saying this whole time: the US dragging hundreds of thousands of Salvadorans to feed its need for cheap, exploitable labor is a disaster for El Salvador.
He also said that the policy of trying to push as many people as possible out of the country (which was the official policy of El Salvador until 2019) is immoral.
The most famous Salvadoran writer Horacio Castellanos Moya says the same thing. Mass migration is destroying Central America.
The Biden administration has already started to show its dislike of Bukele’s administration. Bezos’s WashPo is calling him a dictator, which is ridiculous. The guy has a 75% support in his country, which any US president should dream of.
Will the US remain faithful to its tradition of removing anti-neoliberal Latin American leaders and destroying Latin American democracy?
Let’s wait and see.
