Miami's Argentine population keeps growing

Miyen Spinelli was 13 when he left Argentina for the United States with his family in 2001 as a financial meltdown roiled the country sparking riots, closing banks and bankrupting thousands of businesses. Marcelo Zelicovich left two years later after he lost his aromatherapy business to the same Argentine crisis. The two Argentines were among tens of thousands of economic refugees who ended up resettling in Miami early last decade, further enriching South Florida’s multinational tapestry.
