US, Guatemala sign agreement to restrict asylum cases

US, Guatemala sign agreement to restrict asylum casesThe Trump administration signed an agreement with Guatemala that will restrict asylum applications to the U.S. from Central America. The "safe third country" agreement would require migrants, including Salvadorans and Hondurans, who cross into Guatemala on their way to the U.S. to apply for protections in Guatemala instead of at the U.S. border. It could potentially ease the crush of migrants overwhelming the U.S. immigration system, although many questions remain about how the agreement will be executed.
