This week, Latin Pulse comes remotely from Costa Rica to deal with two issues of crisis: the media economic crisis in Costa Rica and beyond, and the problem of undocumented and unaccompanied minors on the U.S.-Mexico border. The U.S. Border Patrol says the crisis concerning undocumented minors is past its peak, but this program explores the causal issues. The news segment relates how Pope Francis has shifted the Vatican's policy concerning pedophilia in the clergy and has fired a bishop and ordered the house arrest of a former archbishop concerning cases in Paraguay and the Dominican Republic.
The program includes in-depth interviews with:
Eric Olson of the Wilson Center; and
Prof. Ignacio Siles of the Universidad de Costa Rica.
Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell;
Producer: Jim Singer; and
Associate Producer: Gabriela Canchola.
