For years, there have been a steady stream of migrants from Guatemala, and all of Central America, to the United States. Civil wars, violence, poverty, and more have contributed to the migration.
In the first dispatch from a new series on migration in the Americas ("A hunger crisis forces Guatemalans to choose: migration or death" (July 26, 2021), National Geographic looks at how hunger is forcing migrants to flee Guatemala.
The story is worth a read. And, as always, National Geographic has great pictures!
