America’s refugee crisis continues to dominate the news cycle, but while much is known about what’s happening to refugees from Central America once they arrive here – the round-ups, the deportations, the separation of families – what isn’t as clear are the multitude of factors that are causing them to flee their homes in the first place: not just the tide of gang violence that continues to plague the Northern Triangle, but the rising conflict between those gangs and the regional governments that have sworn to eliminate them.
Noah Bullock is the Executive Director of Cristosal, one of the leading NGOs working to advance human rights in Central America. He recently gave a talk at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Palo Alto, California about what he calls the “Displacement Continuum,” wherein refugee families are caught in an ongoing exodus between their native lands and the United States, neither of which are safe enough to call home.
