A report by Jessica Díaz-Hurtado and Felix Contreras for NPR. Follow the link to the original report to listen to the podcast.

El Salvador is in the headlines this week, as the Trump Administration announced changes to a form of protective immigration status that could eventually affect over 200,000 Salvadorans living in this country.

But how much do you really know about El Salvador, beyond this recent immigration news and the usual reports of gang violence?

Curiously, Jessica Diaz-Hurtado and I had already planned an elaborate, cross-country round table with some Salvadoran artists for this week’s show… and then the immigration news broke days before we were scheduled to record the it.

It became more important than ever to us.
