Guatemalan Leftists, with Ties to Pelosi and Soros, Fight Trump’s Migration Deal

A number of leftist activists in Guatemala are fighting President Trump’s recent Third Safe Country Agreement with the Guatemalan government, many of whom have ties to billionaire George Soros and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

Trump and Guatemalan officials signed an agreement late July to allow United States border officials to block requests for asylum by migrants who pass through Guatemala without asking for asylum in the Central American country, as Breitbart News noted.

The deal would dramatically reduce the chance that migrants from Honduras, El Salvador, Africa, and Asia would be released into the U.S. pending an asylum hearing. The federal government has a similar agreement with Canada, which is designed to stop migrants from passing through many safe counties to reach the U.S.

The deal, though, has come with significant pushback from institutional leftists in Guatemala, including those who have ties to Pelosi and Soros, as well as international NGOs with connections to the United Nations.

Manfredo Roberto Marroquín — connected to the leftist organizations Acción Ciudadana, Myrna Mack Foundation, and the Grupo de Apoyo Mutuo (GAM) — has railed against the U.S.-Guatemala agreement with statements and in support of legal action challenging the deal. In one post online, Marroquín called the deal a “shameful agreement.”

The Acción Ciudadana group, which Marroquín is associated with, is partially funded by the U.S. federal government through USAID — which dishes out billions of dollars every decade to NGOs, foreign countries, and aid for foreign nationals.

In the last decade, USAID granted Acción Ciudadana more than $1.5 million in U.S. tax dollars, records obtained by Breitbart News reveal.
