How The U.S. Broke Central America 23

It’s impossible to look at today’s crisis at the border without considering decades of interventionalist policy in Latin America. Aviva Chomsky, professor of history and the coordinator of Latin American Studies at Salem State University, joins guest host John McCaa to talk about hundreds of years of colonization and displacement, and why stabilizing the region will take more than just economic aid. She’s the author of “Central America’s Forgotten History: Revolution, Violence, and the Roots of Migration.”
