El Salvador immigration
This is particularly relevant given all the discussions about Latin American governments recognizing the Palestinian State. As Mike Allison very recently noted, El Salvador just did so. One interesting point the article makes is that the Palestinian community is mostly conservative and supportive of U.S. policy in the region. In other words, they may disagree about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but likely agree with the U.S. on most everything else. Unfortunately, alarmists in the U.S. tend to view them as a threat.
