The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Workers Party seeks to empower the migrant population in the country, mainly Nicaraguans, in order to ensure their fundamental rights.
This was corroborated by Hector Monestel, presidential candidate for this group, which aims to bring to the Legislative Assembly from the neighboring country.
The name of the candidate for second deputy for the province of Alajuela is René Alvarez, who is a farm worker in the north.
“They wanted to give a sensationalist tinge to this approach, because the Workers Party has been defending what are the circumstances of the migrant population in the country, especially for the Nicaraguan sector. As active participants in the economic and social life of the country, we have been proposing that we defend the rights of this population inside and outside of the workplace, as they are one of the most exploited sectors,” said Monestel.
The presidential candidate emphasized that we must distinguish between the transient and migrant population that has been filing in the country over the years. “In our perspective we can not discriminate against this population by nationality,” he said.
With that the aim is not to exclude them and take them into account as the people they are.
“There is a new theme in the issue of migration. In the U.S. and Europe this a hot topic today. In the United States, Hispanics can be congressmen and even presidents” he said.
