Biden Banned Former Guatemalan President Who Criticized Him

Former Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei has been barred from entering the U.S. over allegations of “his  involvement in significant corruption,” the State Department said on Wednesday. This is the former Guatemalan president who rebuked the Biden administration for its open borders.

“The State Department has credible information indicating  that Giammattei  accepted bribes in exchange for the performance of his  public functions during his tenure  as president of  Guatemala,  actions that undermined the rule of law and government transparency,” State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller said in a statement.

The former president was criticized during his tenure for not reviving a U.N.-backed anti-corruption watchdog terminated by his predecessor, and he allegedly clashed with the U.S. over efforts to curb graft.

Giammattei Criticized Biden’s Migration Policy

The former Guatemalan President is a conservative. He once told Vice President Harris that Biden’s messaging had coyotes smuggling children “the very next day.”

A normal President would be concerned about the welfare of the children, but Biden was just angry with Giammattei.

Protesters in Guatemala told Kamala Harris to “go home” and “Trump won.” She got to see the signs on her way to meet Guatemalan President Giammattei.

Guatemalan President Giammattei lectured Harris. He said they “are not on the same side of the coin” regarding migration. “We asked the United States government to send more of a clear message to prevent more people from leaving,” said Giammattei.

Giammattei added that when Biden took office, “the message changed too: ‘We’re going to reunite families, we’re going to reunite children” he said. Consequently, “the very next day, the coyotes were here organizing groups of children to take them to the United States.”

In 2022, Guatemala’s President snubbed Biden’s America’s Summit. Cuba’s President Miguel Diaz-Canel announced he would not attend even if invited, while Guatemala’s conservative leader Alejandro Giammattei pulled out after Washington sanctioned his top prosecutor. Mexico’s President Obrador was considering passing on it.

Biden was angry.

I lost trust in the State Department decades ago when I learned, like the CIA, they are overrun by leftists.

Never, ever, ever, ever criticise the liberal left. The are not liberal, they are totalitarian and do not tolerate ‘dissention.’
