Most people don’t know that there is a fairly large Middle Eastern contingent in Central and South America. They are referred to as “Turcos”, because they came on Turkish passports, fleeing persecution under the Ottoman empire in the late 19th/early 20th. Century. The Columbian singing star Shakira is one of them.
As everywhere, emigres form political pressure groups around issues involving their countries of origin.
