Augustana Professor Provides Insight To Guatemala

Chris Laughery

In The Moment ... June 13, 2019 Show 595 Hour 1

President Trump has been critical of Mexico for what he calls the country's failure to tamp down on illegal migration that uses Mexico as a pathway to America for people from Central American countries such as Guatemala. A recent U.S./Mexico Joint Declaration promises "unprecedented steps to increase enforcement."

NPR has featured reporting this week from the western border between Guatemala and Mexico. 

Augustana University professor David O'Hara provides a different look at Guatemala, where he has traveled and taught. 

Lori Walsh is the host and senior producer of In the Moment.
