La Prensa Gráfica San Salvador, El Salvador 2/4/14
features a news item from the U.S. reporting that the Sheriffs’ Association of the State of New Mexico visited the state capitol last week to demand more resources for their members who must face border related problems. Jack LeVick, executive director of the association, said that the heads of the Sheriffs’ Departments consider that the border “is not secure” and that they still confront problems ranging from the activities of the Mexican drug cartels to searching for immigrants suspected of being in the country without legal authorization.

LeVick added that the group opposes converting an area of Doña Ana County (a NM county that borders Mexico just to the west of El Paso, TX) to a National Monument because the law enforcement chiefs believe this would help the cartels to open up new traffic routes open up.

A Central American newspaper reports that Mexican officials have just intercepted a total of 245 “undocumented” emigrants by checking northbound passenger buses in the states of Puebla and Queretaro.

The total includes 178 males and 67 females, including one who is pregnant; there were also 20 minors, 5 of whom were traveling alone. One of the minors is an eight month old child.

The nationalities represented are : Honduras, Guatemala, Cuba, Nicaragua and El Salvador. (Note: the current U.S. administration has done away with passenger bus/other transportation immigration control checks.)

La Hora Guatemala City, Guatemala 1/31/14

This editorial deals with the debate on immigration reform in the U.S. from that country’s perspective.

Sadly, it’s a vital issue.

The debate in the United States about immigration reform ought to be an issue pertaining to the North Americans due to the significance of the legalization of millions of persons who entered without complying with the legal requirements to reside and work in the country. However, it turns out that few countries have as much interest in that debate as does Guatemala, a country that has “exported” almost two million of fellow citizens who didn’t find opportunities to improve their living standard here and who traveled with the hope of supporting their families with hard work that would provide a more proper income.

It turns out that it isn’t only the migrants’ families that are following the debate, but that all of society and the more important members of the economy are doing so because one must acknowledge that lacking a solid growth of our productivity and internal demand we depend in large measure on the individual monetary remittances (trans. note: funds sent to foreign countries by persons in the U.S. many of whom are here illegally) which have become the engine of our economy, reaching more significant levels than the product of traditional and non-traditional exports, which confirms my thesis in the sense that Guatemala’s main export product is its own people who, contrary to what happens here, are well valued for their abilities and kills for all kinds of work and the ease they show to become technical workers when they get the opportunity to do so.

Unfortunately, the Temporary Protection Status was not extended. It has been of great benefit to citizens of other Central American countries who have had storms and misfortunes such as the ones that have affected Guatemala, especially hurricane Mitch, the same one that made it possible for Hondurans, Nicaraguans and Salvadorans to obtain the TPS due to their governments’ request. The one of Guatemala decided that it wasn’t needed and that finally produced the deportation of hundreds of thousands of fellow citizens who could not be part of that benefit.

Guatemala has a small maneuvering room to lobby in the main centers of power of the United States, especially because surrounding the immigration issue there are ideological considerations that are deeply divided among members of Congress. But it’s important for the Guatemalans who may benefit from the reform to be organized and properly informed about what they must do to not be marginalized, because lack of care can be the difference between the achievement of legal status and obtaining a work permit and facing the risk of deportation.

Given that there are also among the emigrants tensions and special interests from the operating activists’ groups, it is essential that the government, by means of the Embassy and the standard Consulates, plus the mobile ones that ought to be created, ought to have a close contact with the community of emigrants so that they may receive precise and specific information about the status of the reform project and about the documents which will be needed in all cases by the ones who live in the United States to receive the benefits that may finally be decided. If we depend so much on the effort and money from the Guatemalans who work abroad, the least we can do is to assist them to make sure that no one misses out from the advantages of the reform.
