Citizen and Economic Insecurity in El Salvador

The Heritage Foundation invites you to a panel discussion on the upcoming elections in El Salvador and the stakes for U.S. national security. Three primary candidates are in the running to be the next president of El Salvador: Salvador Sánchez Cerén, of the current ruling party, the FMLN, a former Marxist guerilla organization; Norman Quijano, from ARENA party and the current mayor of San Salvador; and Antonio Saca, disgraced former president and candidate of the Unidad coalition. 

As a multitude of security threats, diminishing levels of economic freedom and mounting corruption continue to plague Central America, the United States will need to respond accordingly. Join us for a discussion on the elections, security concerns and the implications for the United States.
