The U.S. Supreme Court ruling limits the rights of Central American children and puts them at further risk.
Despite having lived more than 44 states of exception over the last two decades, Guatemala is about to be declared a "safe territory" for asylum seekers.

The U.N.-sponsored body presented its last activity in the form of a report called "Guatemala: a captured State.”

Samuel Morales, the president’s older brother, and political adviser, and Jose Manuel Morales, the president’s eldest son, were accused of defrauding the land registry of US$12,000 in 2013.
