Guatemala is Begging the U.S. to Grant its Migrants Amnesty

A Biden Administration Would Gladly Fulfill Guatemala’s Request

Published

The Guatemalan government is requesting that the U.S. allow approximately 700,000 Guatemalan migrants stay in America due to flooding that has killed over 150 people in the Central American nation.

According to a Reuters report, the Guatemalan government is requesting Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Guatemalan migrant nationals in the U.S. Neil Munro of Breitbart News explained that this migration “status would allow Guatemala’s illegal migrants to stay and work in the United States, regardless of the high unemployment and low wages among many unskilled Americans.”

“The foreign ministry will, over the course of the week, send the papers to our ambassador in Washington, who will make the request to the U.S. government,” Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei said to reporters. “We don’t know if President Trump will accept or not but we believe that it is our obligation to request it.”

Trump has traditionally opposed TPS and has requested the cancellation of TPS for hundreds of thousands of migrants residing in the U.S. for nearly two decades. On the other hand, the Guatemalan government is likely aware that a Biden administration would be more receptive towards keeping TPS active and bringing in many more migrants than an America First Trump administration.

Should the Biden administration grant TPS to Guatemalan migrants this could spark a Domino effect in Central America where the governments in Honduras and El Salvador would then press the U.S. to bestow amnesty to their respective migrants.

Munro outlined the exact number of Guatemalan migrants making their way across the U.S. border:

Since 2016, roughly 662,432 Guatemalans were registered while crossing the border. The vast majority used border loopholes to semi-legally migrate into the United States, usually by claiming asylum. Few of the migrants have been sent home, even after their temporary legal status has expired.

Munro continued highlighting some of the migrant numbers:

The Guatemalan migrant population includes 278,566 single adults, 294,263 adults with children, plus another 89,583 children or teens delivered by coyotes at the border from 2016 to 2020.

The 2016 to 2020 number does not include the additional number of Guatemalans who successfully marched around the border defenses via the desert and scrubland, nor the 30,649 Guatemalan teens or children relayed by the coyotes in 2014 and 2015, nor the 16,090 Guatemalan teens and children relayed from 2009 to 2013, nor the 57,160 nationals from Guatemala detained in 2015.

This request by Guatemala is a Big Capital’s wet dream. An influx of migrants depresses blue-collar workers’ wages, puts massive pressure on rents in urban centers, and strains public infrastructure. With the magnet of birthright citizenship, migrants can have kids stateside that can serve as their pathway to citizenship. Add in chain migration, and you have a recipe for naturalized migrants to bring in as many family members as possible.

The demographic effects of this are undeniable. Continued migration will sharply transform American political institutions and only beget further migration. The U.S. must be explicit in delineating hard limits to migration. Neglecting to establish these boundaries will result in the U.S. losing its sovereignty.

Party Turns Deadly in Mexico as 11 People are Gunned Down

Meanwhile, America’s border policies remain weak.

This past weekend, gunmen riding in a truck in the Mexican state of Jalisco shot up a party, which resulted in the deaths of 11 people, according to Mexican authorities.

In a statement, prosecutors revealed that police discovered the bodies of 10 men, filled with bullets, on the sidewalk right in front of a home in Tonald, a municipality in the Guadalajara metropolitan area. 

Inside of the home, the body of a boy was found, while another boy and a woman received treatment at a local hospital. 

For those unaware, Jalisco is one of the most economically prominent states in Mexico. In addition, it’s one of the main hubs of drug cartel violence given how it’s the de facto headquarters of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG).

Although Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was elected in 2018 on a platform to clamp down on violence. However, Mexico is politically on the ropes, as murders go through the roof and cartels continue cutting out de facto statelets within Mexico.

At the end of 2020, one of the most notable casualties was former Jalisco Governor Aristoteles Sandoval. He was killed in a restaurant town in the tourist hub of Puerto Vallarta.

According to the Times of Oman, “Almost 100 murders are registered every day across the country of 126 million people, while more than 82,000 people have disappeared since the so-called war on drugs began in Mexico in 2006.”

Mexico is a mess and sadly, the Biden administration has no serious border policies to contain the instability that will inevitably make its way to the states. Instead, the Biden administration is more concerned with getting bogged down in quagmires in the Middle East.
