The most recent U.S. Census figures show the number of Guatemalan people living in the U.N. refugee camps has fallen by more than one-third since 1990.
The population of Guatemala has plummeted from about 8.2 million to less than 1.2 in recent decades.
And, since a U.K.-brokered peace agreement in the 1980s, Guatemala has been ruled by an autocratic military regime, with no elected civilian leaders and little freedom of expression.
The country has been one of the poorest countries in Latin America and one of its poorest countries.
Many Guatemaltecas residents, however, say they have been left out of the U,N.
resettlement program, despite receiving millions of dollars in aid.
The U.C.L.A. Refugee and Migrant Rights Project has been collecting and documenting evidence of Guatemaltecas refugee status violations for more than two years.
“We want to find out why the UN is continuing to allow this to happen,” said Maria A. Hernandez, one of us, referring to the U.,N.
“It’s a clear violation of international law.”
Some people have complained about the government’s unwillingness to admit more Guatemaltenas.
In March, the U.’s Special Rapporteur on Torture said Guatemalta s treatment of migrants was “an affront to humanity and a violation of basic human rights.”
Human rights advocates have also raised concerns that the government is trying to force Guatemaltes into a “borders on slavery” status.
According to an article in The Washington Post, Guatemalts government has made several attempts to forcibly remove the residents of the camps, and one case is ongoing.
Some people, however have been able to survive the journey by buying goods from nearby communities.
“They’re not even allowed to go outside,” said Alejandro M. Gonzalez, who works with the UCLLA Refugee and Migration Project, who has helped residents of Guatemala and the U-N Resettlement Program.
He said that although Guatemala has admitted more than half the population of its population, it is still far behind on housing and other needs.
“A lot of people who have not fled are living in squalor and suffering, and it’s a humanitarian tragedy,” he said.
“I think it’s very unfair that there’s only one way to survive in Guatemala.”
In recent years, Guatemalan authorities have begun to enforce the new rules and have arrested more than 1,000 migrants for smuggling, according to the New York Times.
And the countrys latest attempt to take in some Guatemaltoas refugees, according the UCRP, is to hold a ceremony where a group of Guatemals will receive a certificate for Guatemaltas refugee.
“This is the first time they’ve had to do this,” Gonzalez said.
But even if the ceremony happens, it’s unlikely to be the last.
“There are a lot of problems that need to be addressed,” he added.
“That’s why we need to continue to bring our cases to the United Nations.”
