PANAMA CITY.- Policies against migration impact the average citizen, especially in the border. Eduardo Rojas is a 65 year old Costa Rican who owns a house in Panama, but works as a street vendor on the Tico side of the international city of Paso Canoas.
Rojas reports that some months ago a decline in the economy of the area began when citizens of Cuba, Africa and, recently, Venezuela stopped to transit. Seven months of work in the place have served as a measuring bar between abundance and scarcity.
