By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Guatemala’s president says the Biden administration’s “confusing” messages are the cause for the US border crisis said the New York Post. Mexican president President Andrés Manuel López Obrador made the same remarks in March.
“I believe that in the first few weeks of the Biden administration, messages were confusing. They were compassionate messages that were understood by people in our country, especially the coyotes, to tell families, ‘We’ll take the children,’” President Alejandro Giammattei said Tuesday during an interview on MSNBC.
Giammattei said the messages were confusing “not because of the way they were communicated but because of the way they were translated here.”
Giammattei said that it was a matter of concern when minors traveling alone make it to the United States “because as soon as they cross the border between Mexico and the US, they fall into the hands of cartels and prostitution networks, and so on.”
“What I can say is that no government, no matter how large or strong, can have that gigantic apparatus that would be required to address 30 or 40,000 people in detention centers and have all of them in a status where they are claiming refuge. As we explained, many of these issues can be corrected, but we have to work together,” Giammattei said.
This comes while the United States is garnering the support of Northern Triangle countries (Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador) and Mexico to stem the migration wave looking for a better life in the United States.
