Though she tries every few hours, Juana Paz Serrano can't get through to her 80-year-old father, who lives in San Salvador. His phone has been dead since the massive earthquake hit El Salvador on Saturday. All his daughter can think about is how her father suffers from heart trouble. "I'm so worried," the Costa Mesa woman said Sunday. "There's nothing to be done. We can only call and wait."

Ezell's remarks about possible death squad activity in Los Angeles are a tour de force of callous arrogance. Ezell dismisses death threats against individuals and the kidnaping and rape of a Salvadoran woman as a bid for publicity by the sanctuary movement. He belittles the rape victim's trauma with the comment " . . . that happens all over the state . . . " then goes on to impugn the character of Father Olivares. Ezell's remarks would be merely insensitive if made by a private citizen.

Although El Salvador's bloody civil war is over, mass deportations of Salvadorans in the United States would undermine a delicate peace and subject returning expatriates to hardship and danger, activists said Tuesday. Activists--including two Los Angeles-area congressional representatives and an official of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles--delivered their message during a news conference outside the federal building in downtown Los Angeles.

Their war-torn country bears the name of the Savior, El Salvador. For the more than 700,000 Salvadorans in Southern California, the sacred image of Jesus Christ, Divine Savior of the World, standing with outstretched arms, has served as a patron saint for their country. It was he, the immigrants say, who helped them escape the bloodshed of civil war and settle in the United States.

The Clinton Administration is expected to announce today that it will end a special refugee program for Salvadoran immigrants, but will use procedures that make it unlikely any would be deported for at least two years--and perhaps far longer, officials said.

Once home to elegant restaurants and apartments, the streets of the Pico-Union District are now tired and unkept. Wrought iron guards many of the storefronts and weeds have overrun the spaces that concrete and trash have missed. It's a stark contrast to the lush green mountains and verdant countryside of Central America, yet the neighborhood has become home to the greatest concentration of Salvadorans outside El Salvador and the largest number of Guatemalans outside Guatemala.
