‘Into the lion’s den’: Mexican asylum seekers fear deportation to Guatemala

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico/MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexicans seeking refuge in the United States to escape violence and lawlessness in their homeland fear worse dangers if they are sent to Guatemala under a new Trump administration scheme to crack down on asylum seekers. Under U.S. rules made public on Monday, Mexicans requesting protection at the U.S.-Mexican border can be flown to Guatemala to seek refuge there instead.
