Re: TONIGHT: Carlos Ball on U.S./Latin American relations
The meeting last night was great. Karl Dickey (RLC-endorsed
candidate for State Senate District 30) made a short presentation
about his campaign prior to Carlos' talk.
Then Carlos talked about how U.S. policy hurts our interests in
Latin America and pointed to five policy prescriptions to improve
relations and to encourage the pro-liberty elements in Latin America:
1) Expand free trade and investment with the Americas
2) Expand legal immigration
3) Ease travel restrictions between U.S. and Latin America
4) Stop U.S. foreign aid to latin American governments
5) Stop U.S. intervention in latin America in the name of the Drug
