The Intervention Paradox: The Creation of Modern Migration Crises

American interventions in Latin America from the 1950s to 1990s often lacked insight into the need for long-term stability. Thus, many countries that experienced U.S. political and military intervention have seen instability, resulting in political uncertainty, crime and a lack of opportunity that has driven people to immigrate to the U.S. Yet, this history is rarely discussed during current conversations on migration. This acute ignorance has prevented justice from being delivered and perpetuates the cycle of irresponsibility that led us here in the first place.
