In 1986 I was invited to participate in a Latin American conference of Mayors meeting in Curazao. My presentation was a very simple one, in order to erradicate poverty, urban decay, the United States Government should consider creating through the Inter American Development Bank (BID)  a FHA loan guarantee programs to provide descent housing and a plot of land to the millions os Central and Latin American families that are forced to emmigrate to the United States looking for a better life and work. Illegal immigration cost the U.S tax payers at least $ 200 Billion dollars a year. A loan guarantee program for the millions of poor families in Latin American will cost much les than that at it will serve to retain population in their respective Latin American homelands.Besides this program bay be the corner stone of Social Justice at it will serve to strengthen the ties of Latin American countries with the U.S.  neutralizing China’s “Open Wallet” policy  South of the Border.
