Covid-19 Impacts Migrant Vulnerabilities and Remittances to Latin America and the Caribbean

Manuel Orozco was interviewed on CGTN America about the impact of the United States’ Covid-19 related economic crisis on Latin American migrants and remittances sent to Latin America. “Migrant workers all over the world are losing their jobs, and perhaps the job losses are higher than for the native-born population. One of the consequences is that migrants feel constrained from continuing sending money to their families.”
