Guatemala’s President Joins Mexican President and Blames Joe Biden For Border Crisis, ‘Confusing Messages’ (VIDEO)

Guatemala’s president joined Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and blamed Joe Biden for the border crisis during a sit-down interview with MSNBC.

“I believe that in the first few weeks of the Biden administration, messages were confusing. They were compassionate messages that were understood by people in our country, especially the coyotes, to tell families we’ll take the children,” President Alejandro Giammatei said Tuesday. “And children can go, and once children are there they will call their parents.”

Migrants fleeing El Salvador and Honduras have to travel through Guatemala and Mexico in order to reach the US border.

More than 20,000 unaccompanied migrant children are now in US custody thanks to Joe Biden’s invitation to ‘surge the border.’

President Alejandro Giammatei said that he has seen coyotes carrying out “horrible acts” like tossing toddlers over high walls.

“This is not humane behavior,” he said slamming the Biden Admin’s claims of having a more “humane” approach to immigration.

“What I can say is that no government, no matter how large or strong, can have that gigantic apparatus that would be required to address 30 or 40,000 people in detention centers and have all of them in a status where they are claiming refuge. As we explained, many of these issues can be corrected, but we have to work together,” he said.
