On Thursday, we went to Easton to talk to Rafael about his life in his home country and in the U.S.  The interview was conducted in Spanish.  Rafael moved to the Lehigh Valley from El Salvador 6 years ago. He works as a cook in an Italian restaurant to pay his rent at his apartment in Easton, which he shares with another Salvadorian family. He says that he never imagined that he would be able to own his own car or rent an apartment to himself because in his country job opportunities just don’t exist. His dream is to save up enough money to be able to build a house back home.
