The UN Special Rapporteur, Philip Alston, for the first time in contemporary history studied the problem of poverty in the United States and concluded: “The equality of opportunity, which is so prized in theory, is in practice a myth, especially for minorities and women”. With 40 million poor people, “The American Dream is rapidly becoming the American Illusion”. RT Spanish correspondent Helena Villar confirms the conclusions of the expert drawing on the example of Skid Row, Los Angeles. Almost 90% of women there are victims of sexual abuse. The insanitary conditions cause epidemics: for every 2,000 people there are only 9 WCs. These things should not happen in the most powerful country in the world, according to the presenter of the programme.
