(SACRAMENTO) — Last week, Assemblymember Luis Alejo (D-Salinas) returned from a four day diplomatic visit to the country of El Salvador. Alejo received an invitation from the Vice President of El Salvador, Salvador Sánchez Cerén, in August after he visited the City of Watsonville—Alejo’s hometown and the sister city of San Pedro Masahuat in El Salvador. The purpose of the both visits was to focus on strengthening the ties between El Salvador and California.
“Diplomatic ties between California and El Salvador are extremely important,” states Alejo. “Nearly one million Salvadorans live in California, which makes Salvadorans the second largest Latino population in the state. For this reason, it is crucial that we learn about El Salvador’s people and culture in order to understand how we can best serve this growing portion of our constituency.”
