The Guatemalan Minister of Governance Enrique Degenhart is calling out the Mexican government for its role in the migrant crisis.

Degenhart explained:

When I talk about the pull factor, i’m talking about our neighbor, Mexico –that unfortunately has been offering different kinds of benefits, admin benefits like visas and other kinds of work permits and situations that basically enhance the interests of our Guatemalans  on using Mexico as a route to the U.S.

What he said is that crime has reduced in Guatemala because the criminals are going to the USA via visas issued to traverse via Mexico!

Oh my God this US invasion is orchestrated!
