by Jose Antonio Solano S – I have earned the animosity of many for defending Nicaraguan immigrants. I still think that as a nation, not as a people, they deserve the ignorant, shameful and ridiculous Orteguista dictatorship.

I have also heard absurd positions and proposals, disseminated by online media replicated on social networks, even proposing to build a wall.

The voice must be raised internationally. Demand from the international community – PAHO and WHO in conjunction with the OAS and UN security – emergency intervention on our northern border.
