Basically, the US forgave $12 Million in debt to the nation of COsta Rica as long as they continue conservation of thier natural ecosystems. Which means they cannot build heavy or light manufacturing plants, oil refineries, power generators, multi lane roads, etc, basically all of the ecologically unfriendly things we rely on in the US for our lifestyle. So we encourage a lower level of economic development, which menas Costa Ricans see the US lifestyle on TV and cannot duplicate it there. Which leads to immigration, but the US has limits on how many people we will allow in. Which means many will try to sneak in illegally. Ok, its a long chain of barely related causation, but doe sit make sense?
