Latin Pulse: 5.20.2016

Puerto Rico and Mexico provide the central locales for the main themes this week on Latin Pulse. The program analyzes a proposal before the U.S. Congress to help Puerto Rico survive its debt crisis. But the proposal includes a fiscal control board that can supersede the powers of Puerto Rico's government, a provision that some find controversial. The program also includes a wide ranging discussion of corruption, politics and diplomacy with Mexico. The news segment of the program covers the outcome of the presidential elections in the Dominican Republic and the re-election of President Danilo Medina.

The program includes in-depth interviews with:

Brad Setser of the Council on Foreign Relations; and
Shannon O'Neil of the Council on Foreign Relations

Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell;
Technical Director: Jim Singer; and 
Production Assistant: Chorsie Martin.
