"The whole world is watching" this election year in the United States. The outcome of U.S. elections has always had a ripple effect on political situations and economies in countries around the world. Latin Americans in particular are watching cautiously. U.S. candidates for Congress and the Presidency are blending anti-immigrant rhetoric with praise for free trade, sending a mixed message to Latin America.
