"was taken into custody by border agents"

Why? I understand the NTSB, or FAA being a little pissed, and perhaps Guatemala get a slap on the wrist. But he's here ... give him work authorization and let him go. This fascism has to stop.

Impressive. Usually they fall out when the doors open or get crushed when the gear retracts.

They shouldn't be arresting this man. He's got the type of motivation, drive and ingenuity we need more of. They should drop him in the most run down area of Flynt Mi. Within 90 days he will have revitalized his neighborhood. He will solve the city's water crisis within a year.

Usually they die from hypoxia flying around unpressurized at 35,000 feet. That's another 6k higher than Everest, with no equipment.

From what I saw on the news last evening, he was not in good shape when the agents got to him. They asked him to stand, which he did, but he quickly went back down to the ground, too weak to stand.

But yeah, to your point, he is lucky to be alive.

Why did he risk that? If Guatamala is such a toilet why don't we help them to be less so, so people aren't so desperate to leave,?

Because Rs have a conniption fit if we help anyone who isn't rich.

We gave over 8 BILLION away in foreign aid in 2020. The only thing we have a "conniption fit" over is showing how easy it is to put a foreign object in the landing gear.

"We gave over 8 BILLION away in foreign aid in 2020."

Blah blah blah ...

What's this We crap? You wouldn't give a dime to these people if had you any say in the matter.

America also trained and equipped the Guatemalan security forces that murdered thousands of civilians in the nation's civil war during the 1960s.

So we do sort of owe them.

So naturally Trumpy froze the $450 million aid package to Guatemala.

So naturally Democrats have restored most of that.

But not we. Definitely not you.

Obama let Guatemala get taken over by a band of criminals under his watch when he recognized their government that had just cheated and murdered they way into power as he did what the Status Quo in big business wanted. However, just because some countries have bad governments does not mean their citizens have a right to come into any country under the radar. I have migrated twice in my life and yes I was dirt poor but I still had to go by their laws or get the boot rightfully. The right thing to do would be to admit what the U$A has did in the past to these Central American countries was bad and make sure we do not repeat these mistakes and try to help these countries enable themselves as descent democracies and not force neoliberalism down their throats. No wall, no heavy handed policing at our frontiers will stop them coming. We need them themselves to rebuild their countries and not enable the giant corporations or cartel gangs take hold of their governments.
