The following two videos examine US involvement in Central America and its impact on Central American’s fleeing to the US in search of asylum. The first is from Al Jazeera and contains some disturbing images of violence in the region. The second is from the History Channel and is less graphic, but makes very similar points about US responsibility for the crisis we are now attempting to stop by force at the border.
