One thought on “Eastern migration road from Central America to the USA

  • Mrs. Jennifer Bryson Clark formally participated as a consultant in a collaborative research grant between the Trafficking in Person’s Office (TIP) of the U.S. of State and The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. The TIP Office of the U.S. State Department — through the grant referred to here — does not fund individuals, nor research of individuals.

    The text as it is today in South Texas College’s website is a misrepresentation that adds to the serious ethical issues in Mrs. Jennifer Bryson Clark’s involvement in this particular research.

    Mrs. Clark did not conduct the interviews required for this research because she did not speak English and could not perform in that language. Moreover, she was not able to understand the material in Spanish needed to analyze the available information and produce the required reports. Clark mostly performed as a research assistant in the project.

    This is the page of our project that cost me and my team countless hours and personal risk that Clark was never willing to take.
