Trump May Send Asylum Seekers To Guatemala Instead

President Donald Trump is expected to sign a major immigration deal with Guatemala early next week.

According to Business Insider, those seeking asylum in the US could be sent to Guatemala instead.

It's unclear how Guatemala would deal with such an influx of migrants.

Officials have said that it looks like the agreement is meant to strong-arm Mexico into accepting a similar one with the US.
