From NPR's Latino USA: There and Back


The Central American migrant crisis is back in the news. For this week's show, Latino USA revisits this issue, which we initially covered in 2014. We also ask: what is the U.S. doing now with migrants seeking asylum? We present some history of how El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala got to this place and catch you up on the recent events regarding this month's ICE raids.
