Friday, March 13, 2009 :Two Republican lawmakers have issued threats over the outcome of Sunday's national elections in El Salvador. On Thursday, Republican Congressmembers Trent Franks of Arizona and Dan Burton of Indiana said Salvadorans living in the U.S. could lose their immigration status and the right to send remittances home if the leftist FMLN party wins the vote. Polls indicate the FMLN will beat the right-wing ARENA party, which has long had close ties to Washington.
