HUMAN RIGHTS: Central American Migrations


James Lamb reports on a panel of experts discussing at Central American migrations and the moral crisis on the U.S. border.

“Decades ago, all of us knew — and some of us rather close up — the violence, the repression, the massive displacement, the brutality, the abuses, the massacres, the disappearances, and impunity in Central America, yet the U.S. government supported and defended savage military regimes that the UN termed genocidal.” With this observation, UC Berkeley Professor Emerita Beatriz Manz offered critical context for the present as moderator for the expert panel on Central American migration and the U.S. border hosted by the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) at UC Berkeley on September 4, 2019.
