The Washington Post reports the huge migration out of Guatemala and into U.S. workplaces is driven by basic economics, despite Democrats’ lockstep claims the migration is driven by fear of crime and abuse.
The Post story carried the headline, “The migration problem is a coffee problem,” and the subheadline “In western Guatemala, cultivating coffee was once a way out of poverty. As prices fall, growers are abandoning their farms for the United States.”
The article goes on to state the following:
However, the report from Guatemala quietly ignored the legal reality the migrants are illegal immigrants because U.S. asylum law protects people fleeing persecution — not people fleeing a disastrous drop in coffee prices. This long-standing legal exclusion of economic migrants is intended to protect ordinary Americans and their families from investors’ use of wage-cutting migrant labor.
The Post also provided multiple examples of migrants using their young children to trigger the establishment’s catch-and-release loopholes to get themselves into U.S. jobs. For example, the article features Rodrigo Carrillo, a tough coffee farmer in the village of Hoja Blanca, who bought his small farm with money earned working illegally in the United States:
Last month, he pulled out a wrinkled map of the U.S.-Mexico border and pointed to the spot on the edge of Arizona where he plans to cross with his 5-year-old son.
“I’m leaving in 11 days,” he said. “There’s no money in coffee anymore.”
Breitbart noted in their report that approximately four million young Americans become available to join the workforce after graduating from high school or college each year – but the U.S. government then imports about 1.1 million legal immigrants and refreshes about 1.5 million visa workers. The report further states:
The government also prints out more than one million work permits for foreigners, tolerates about eight million illegal workers, and does not punish companies for employing the hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants who sneak across the border or overstay their legal visas each year.
This policy of inflating the labor supply boosts economic growth for investors because it ensures that employers do not have to compete for American workers by offering higher wages and better working conditions.

A large number of Guatemalan migrants arriving at the border were coffee farmers for Starbucks and other big companies. Why did they leave? Because the price of coffee crashed. https://t.co/ct6PQd1x6W

“Here in western Guatemala, one of the biggest factors in that surge is the falling price of coffee, from $2.20 per pound in 2015 to a low this year of 86 cents — about a 60 percent drop” Phenomenal reporting from @ksieff and photos by @sarahvoisin https://t.co/BYPFIE0X9A
