Are the people there genuinely hopeful for a better life? Tying into the long history of immigration from South America to the US, I’m wondering if the view of the States as a sage haven of sorts, with the possibility of an American Dream for everyone is still prevalent, or if the news that the American Dream is a sham has reached them as well.

I understand of course that it’s all a question of relativity and they’ll still most probably be safer there than where they are right now, so this may not even be a bother to them, I’m just wondering in general if the collective mental image of the US has changed, especially with the Trump administration.

Thanks so much in advance and thanks for the wonderful work you’re doing! greets from Austria
