This week, Latin Pulse takes a deeper look at the disappearance of students from Ayotzinapa and Cuban migration to the United States. Global activists are protesting due to the disappearance of the 43 university students in Mexico. The situation is emblematic of decades of corruption and collusion in the Mexican government. This time, however, it appears the Mexican government will be held to account. Later in the program, Cuban immigrants are coming to the U.S. in higher numbers now than any time in the past 20 years. The program looks at the reason behind this increased immigrant flow.The program includes in-depth interviews with:
Maureen Meyer of the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA);
William LeoGrande of American University.
Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell;
Producer: Jim Singer; and
Associate Producer: Gabriela Canchola.
