Since Trump’s infamous call for a border wall and vague, fear-mongering threats of a “caravan of migrants”, security along the U.S.-Mexico border has become a topic of increasing interest for the average American. How much of a security concern does migration from South and Central America pose, if any, to the U.S.? And how can the U.S. address the root causes forcing this mass migration in a sustainable and non-destructive way?
Guest host Clint Watts will talk to Delphine Schrank, freelance journalist and former Reuters Latin American Chief Correspondent based in Mexico City. Delphine has traveled through Central America and Mexico with several migrant caravans. She and Clint will discuss the migrant experience traveling with a caravan and the root causes spurring these migrations.
