Newly-elected Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei on Tuesday told the Associated Press that the immigration deal his country signed with the Trump administration last month won’t work.
Outgoing President Jimmy Morales signed an agreement which forces migrants from other countries who cross into Guatemala to apply for asylum there rather than the U.S., an arrangement known as a “safe third country agreement.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“In order to be a safe country, one has to be certified as such by an international body, and I do not think Guatemala fulfills the requirements to be a third safe country. That definition doesn’t fit us,” said Giammattei, 63, told AP.
“If we do not have the capacity for our own people, just imagine other people.”
