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.
Tom Cotton: Biden DHS Pick Alejandro Mayorkas Disqualified for Cheap Labor Visa Corruption
Will this derail Mayorkas?
Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton confirmed he would vote against Joe Biden’s pick for the Department of Homeland Security in the event Biden is inaugurated, citing Alejandro Mayorkas’s track record of delivering cheap labor visas to elite Democrat donors and business interests as the Director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services. Mayorkas served as USCIS Director in the Obama administration.
Cotton explained his rationale on opposing a tentative Mayorkas nomination in a tweet thread over the weekend. Cotton cited a report from DHS’s Inspector General who indicated Mayorkas consistently approved visa applications for workers that would be employed by politically-connected and influential Democrats for American jobs.
His favored pick to lead DHS, Alejandro Mayorkas, is a former DHS official who gave out green cards as political favors.

Mayorkas had provided free visa workers to companies owned by Democrats such as former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe and Nevada arch-Democrat Senator Harry Reid. The 2014 DHS IG’s report on Mayorkas’s corporate welfarism indicated that the Democrat-affiliated bureaucrat had expressed annoyance at inquiries from USCIS employees on improving counter-fraud efforts, instead demanding that they focus on approving as many migrant visas as possible. The IG’s report had accused him of “an appearance of favoritism and special access” through his political use of visa programs.
Jessica Vaughn of the Center for Immigration Studies pointed to Mayorkas’s migration corporate welfarism in a statement provided to Breitbart News after news of his shadow nomination. (Biden hasn’t even secured the presidency yet, as final results in contested states await litigation.)
“He is the exact kind of nominee that people didn’t want to see — someone in favor of corporate interests on immigration, of looking the other way on fraud, of rubber-stamping every [migration] application.”
Mayorkas has cited his connection to refugee resettlement in the United States, and would be likely to massively increase refugee admissions as well as approve as many visa applications as possible as Secretary of DHS. If Biden ends up being inaugurated, his confirmation vote could prove a key indicator of which Republican Senators plan to fight for the interests of Americans on immigration policy, and which intend to look the other way in favor of corporate and billionaire special interests.
