If anybody can provide a better translation, have at it. For what it's worth, here is a Babel English Translation of this article from today's La Opinion, major Spanish-language daily in Los Angeles:

"Letter of Salvadorans to Bush Asking the USA Chief Executive To Include Subject of Immigration in His Visit To El Salvador

SAN SALVADOR. - - Leaders of the Salvadoran community of immigrants of the different American cities directed yesterday a letter to the president of the United States, George W. Bush, in whom they solicit to him to include the subject of the immigrants in the negotiations of a Treaty of Libre Comercio (TLC), that its country would negotiate with Central America.

The representing leaders of Red American Salvadoran Nacional (SANN) assured that a delegation in Washington, headed by their president, Oscar Chacón, will give the letter in the White House, in which they ask to him Bush to make arrangements to benefit the Central American immigrants resident in the United States.

Bush will visit El Salvador for five hours the next Sunday in a tour that also includes Mexico and Peru. In El Salvador the American President will meet with his homologous Central Americans, including the presidents of Panama and Belize, with those who will explore the possibility of subscribing a TLC.

The text of the SANN letter indicates that it asks Bush to extend to all Salvadoran immigrants what has been called Been of Protección Temporal (TPS) by 18 months more, in order that the benefitted people (more than 270,000 thousands are there) can continue working and helping with remittances to their relatives in El Salvador affected by earthquakes of January and February of the last year.

In addition, they solicit to him that the migratory subject between the United States and Central America is including like " indispensable component " before a possible negotiation of a TLC between both parts. In the same way that the immigrants can participate in these negotiations to be active parts in the society and the economy of the United States and Central America.

Finally, SANN insists to Bush to support all the managements necessary so that all the resident immigrants in the United States have the right to work legally, as well as to have access to benefits social and economic and to travel freely towards its countries of origin.

In the United States resides 2.3 million Salvadorans whom annually they send more than 1.900 million dollars in quality of familiar remittances, the first source of external income of El Salvador." End of Translation

I knew this was going to happen - and the Hondurans, Nicaraguans, Ecuadorans and Peruvians will also make the same demand. Not mentioned in this "misiva" to Bush is that among the 270,000 ILLEGAL Salvadorans are untold thousands of Salvadoran gangbangers known as the "Salvatruchas". They're already well established in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Houston, New York, Charlotte and coming soon to a neighborhood near you. They're among the most vicious of the Latin gangs and have branches in El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico. In Mexico the narcos use Salvatruchas as their "sicarios" (assassins); they're not afraid of the police and they're definitely not afraid of the common U.S. citizen which might get in their way. Unless some of our congresspeople take a firm stand I have no doubt we'll see the amnesty extended to ALL illegals.
