Guatemala Agrees To Migration Measures To Avoid Sanctions

President Donald Trump said he agreed to drop the threat of economic sanctions against Guatemala, Reuters reports.

This comes after the country said it would implement new measures aimed at reducing U.S. asylum claims. The American Civil Liberties Union said it will likely challenge the Guatemala agreement in court.

Nearly 200,000 people traveling in families from El Salvador and Honduras have been apprehended at the U.S. border since October.

Most migrants pass through Guatemala and Mexico along the way.
