“We made it very clear in our response that we lost confidence in the Guatemalan Attorney General (Consuelo Porras) as a partner in the effort to combat corruption,” said Vice President Kamala Harris when announcing the immigration plan.
According to the official, the protests that have taken place in Guatemala after Sandoval’s removal, “are a reflection of the profound importance that the citizens of Central America give to good governance and accountability.”
