But who could forget one of the last times the U.S. stuck its boots in that central american tar pit?
Guess who commissioned “La Bestia,” a central american radio hit about the dangers of the journey to America?

Note: Countries in Central America (except for Belize and Costa Rica) are characterized by unstable governments and very low per capita income.
Note: The United States government has often taken the position that Central American affairs directly affect American interests. Accordingly, it has often provided financial and military aid to Central American governments and occasionally intervened militarily.
