HRI’s new report, Dead Ends: No Path to Protection for Asylum Seekers Under the Guatemala Asylum Cooperative Agreement, finds that Guatemala does not meet the standards under U.S. and international law for a “safe third country” and that U.S. and Guatemalan officials regularly engage in conduct that violates the human rights of asylum seekers.

The report will be released at 2:00 PM EST. A link to the report can be found here at that time: https://www.law.georgetown.edu/human-rights-institute/our-work/fact-finding-project/dead-ends/
