Trump Threatens Guatemala with Tariffs and Other Penalties After Failure of Immigration Deal

HeadlineJul 24, 2019

President Trump threatened to retaliate against Guatemala for failing to sign a so-called safe-third-country deal with the U.S. In a tweet Tuesday, he threatened to impose tariffs, remittance fees and an unspecified “ban” on Guatemala. Earlier this month, Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales canceled a trip to Washington after a court in Guatemala blocked the signing of such an agreement between the two countries following a massive outcry. The deal would have allowed the U.S. to send migrants—from any country of origin—to Guatemala instead of processing asylum requests at the U.S. border.
