FYI, some Guatemalans speak an Indian language instead of Spanish. The same is true for some Mexicans.
On Saturday Ramazzini told them, “You are not criminals…you are here because your own country was not able to give you what you have the right to have.”

“There’s hope that things can change,” he added.
Couple of points:
(1) They are criminals. They have committed a crime and that makes them criminals. They probably won't be executed or jailed, and may not ever face some sort of punishment, but they are criminals.
(2) If there is hope for a change of some sort, it will have to be in Guatemala, not America. Nothing is going to change in America except that it may become more difficult to cross the border illegally.
