Pasco Gets International Attention From The BBC

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- The city of Pasco is getting international attention, this time by the British Broadcasting Corporation.  

A group of journalists from BBC Mundo, that's world in Spanish, stopped at the Pasco Flea Market today as part of their road trip all across the US.

They want to speak to people who speak Spanish in the country and raise awareness about issues important to the Hispanic community.

They have a couple of reasons why they picked Pasco.

"The first is because we knew there was a big Latino population and the second one is that we thought it was interesting that this city is called Pasco like the city in Peru," said Jose Baig, Hispanic Affairs Correspondent for BBC Mundo.

They started their journey in Seattle yesterday and they hope to get to Washington D.C. by April 15th. Once the documentary is finished it will go to the hands of the presidential candidates.
