Welcome back to another week of Central American news.
This week marked the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Nicaraguan Sandinista revolution. The President of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, commemorated the date and reiterated that he would not allow early elections.
Check out a special section on the Sandinista Revolution and what the revolution means today in Nicaragua at the bottom of the newsletter.
In the meantime, President Trump moved to end asylum protection for Central American asylum seekers who pass through another country first. As from July, asylum seekers who step on another country first - such as Mexico - will not be able to apply for asylum in the U.S.
