The so-called “ safe 3rd nation ” contract would need migrants, consisting of Hondurans and salvadorans, who cross into Guatemala on their method to the U.S. to make an application for defenses in Guatemala rather of at the U.S. border. It might possibly relieve the crush of migrants frustrating the U.S. migration system and hand Trump a concession he might declare as a win.
Trump threatened Guatemala with tariffs and a travel restriction previously today for stopping talks on its classification as a safe 3rd nation for asylum-seekers, The Washington Post reported. If designated, it would permit the U.S. to press migrants far from the southern border.
