    Guatemalan President, Jimmy Morales took to social media today to share his views on the immigration policy of U.S. President, Donald Trump’s administration. Morales stated “when a policy, however necessary it pretends to appear, ends with the separation of the family and the pain of so many human beings, especially children, it should not only be revised, it should be corrected as soon as possible.” “The nobility and greatness of a nation are at stake,” he added. The policy has sparked international concern because its enforcement causes the separation of entire families at the United States border. The United Nations...

    A seemingly odd fireman is fighting fires in Guatemala—Israel. Even before Guatemala’s Vulcan del Fuego resumed its restless sleep Sunday evening, Israel issued emergency aid from its embassy including $10,000 for medical purchases. The pyroclastic flow that erupted from Vulcan del Fuego slammed into the village of El Rodeo at the base of the volcano, killing at least 69. Due to the close proximity of the volcano to Guatemala City, some 1.7 million people have been affected. In response to the tragedy, President Jimmy Morales declared three days of national mourning.

Then it began sending lava flows down the mountain's flank and across homes and roads around 4 p.m. local time Eddy Sanchez, director of the country's seismology and volcanology institute, said the flows reached temperatures of...

    President Trump declared on Sunday the deal for the Obama-era DACA program was “NO MORE” and called for "tough" immigration reform after a report stated a caravan carrying more than 1,000 people from Central America is traveling through Mexico and to the United States in hopes of entering the states illegally or by asking for asylum. Trump, who has vowed to end catch and release, tweeted Sunday morning that Republicans need to take the "nuclear option" when passing tougher immigration laws.

    Could a recent Buzzfeed news story force America to get even tougher with Mexico due to illegal immigration? Based on President Trump's tweets today, that answer is yes. On Friday March 30th, BuzzFeed's Adolfo Flores documented shocking photos of more than 1,000 migrants from Central America marching through the streets Mexico on their way to the United States border. While the fact that migrants come through Mexico was not unsurprising, the sheer mass of people and the blatant unwillingness of Mexico's immigration agents to even bother with the problem was truly dismaying.
