Synopsis

Even though unemployment is at 60% in Nicaraqua, and the people are very poor, Father Grant Gallup would rather live in Manaqua, Nicaraqua than in the United States. Gallup explained there are 600,000 shacks in Nicaraqua. In the US, police tear down shacks that the homeless build. According to Gallup, the press is freer in Nicaraqua as opposed to self-serving in the United States.
