U.S. says no plans to send asylum seekers to remote Guatemalan regionsGUATEMALA CITY/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. government said on Saturday that it had no plans to send asylum seekers to remote regions in Guatemala after the Central American country floated the plan during negotiations for a bilateral migration agreement this week. The two countries are finalizing a deal signed over the summer that would allow the United States to send asylum seekers who arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border, but who passed first through Guatemala on their journey, back to Guatemala to seek refuge there instead. Guatemala's Interior Minister Enrique Degenhart, who met officials from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Friday, told Reuters the government was considering accepting arriving asylum seekers at remote airports far from the country’s capital of Guatemala City.
