For example, Guatemala is pushing for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for the tens of thousands of undocumented Guatemalans who are in the United States, while it is coordinating, with other countries of Central America and Mexico, investigations into the Tamaulipas massacre and other cases, Reynosa said.

TPS is a temporary immigration status granted by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to nationals of designated countries who are temporarily unable to safely return to their home country due to armed conflict, the effects of an environmental disaster, or other temporary, extraordinary conditions.
I was unaware there were these conditions in Guatemala at present?

Well it would be nice if they had to sell enough to use the proceeds to pay for their ticket home, if they can afford to ship their stuff back with them?

The problem is most of them don't know the difference between temporary, and permanent.

Guatemala needs to shut up about how the USA does things. Mexico treats illegal Guatemalans very bad.

It's so obvious these other nations just don't want the burden of taking care of their own people!

Imagine the outrage if America decided to start encouraging its poor and unemployed to move to Canada!

It must be easy to support these people when they are thousands of miles away from your shores. It says something about the quality of people coming here when their own government doesn't want them back and essentially saying to America "Keep'em! Don't send'em back!"
