Guatemala seen as ill-prepared to absorb US-bound refugees

FILE - In this Jan. 10, 2019 file photo, Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales talks with Canada's ambassador Rita Marija Rudaitis-Renaud during a welcome ceremony for ambassadors in Guatemala City. A potential agreement with Washington to turn Guatemala into a “safe third country” for asylum seekers has the Guatemalan opposition up in arms and experts scratching their heads. President Morales is set to meet Monday, July 15, in Washington with U.S. counterpart Donald Trump, and officials there have said “safe third country” is on the table, though not a done deal.
