USTIN, TEXAS Hilda Ramirez is a Guatemalan Indian who has spent four months in a church that has provided her with sanctuary in this Texas city in order to prevent U.S. authorities from detaining her and complying with the deportation order issued against her and her 10-year-old son.

She has no wish to return to Guatemala, from where she fled north in 2014 without speaking a word of English and very little Spanish. The "humiliations" suffered by Ramirez, 28, for being an Indian made her take that decision, she told EFE in an interview.

Ramirez: you're an ILLEGAL alien; being "Indian" doesn't have anything to do with that you broke the law and got picked up. Too; I'm guessing Mexico ain't good enough for you since you had to cross that country to get to the US?

Guatemala is exterminating the Mayans, their native Indian. And they are not welcome in Mexico either. Mexicans and Guatemalans hate each other. Learn a little before ranting.

No one from South or Central America is welcome in Mexico, thats why they head here. That being said, I am sympathetic to their plight, and I am happy that there have been no mass slayings by any Guadamalians like there have been with Muslims. I do know about Gaudamalian street gangs and the same doesn't apply.

Uh; many Mexicans are of Mayan family, too. Too; once here in the US, Guatemalans, Mexicans, Dominicans, Argentines and so on ALL claim "Hispanic" so let LatAm take care if "their own".

Up through the 90s the government in Guatemala routinely murdered Mayans, thousands of them. I have a good friend from there.

They don't group together in the US. They don't even eat each other's food. Mexicans and Guatemalans consider each other "unclean". Most from Guatemala of Mayan lineage don't even speak Spanish.

Looked it up, Guatemala executed an estimated 100,000 Mayan Indians.

They consider them less than human.

It sounds like denial there since I though MOST Guatemalans were at least part "Mayan".
