Guatemala Protests US CIS Mistreatment
The Guatemalan government demanded that the Bush administration open an investigation into the mistreatment of Guatemalans repatriated by US Citizenship and Immigration Service authorities.

Guatemala s Chancellor Gert Rosenthal sent a letter of protest to the Washington embassy in this capital, requesting an investigation of the denouncements made by those deported by the United States.

In a press statement Assistant Foreign Minister Marta Altolaguirre said there are testimonies of mistreatment at the US detention centers, including the confiscation of personal items from the Guatemalan repatriates, such as money and jewels.

Altolaguirre strongly objected to this conduct by US immigration authorities, and opposed the procedures used when detaining and repatriating Guatemalans.
