MIA asks for TPS while in Guatemala

While Guatemala was reeling from the effects of a recent tropical storm and the eruption of the Pacaya volcano, MIA’s big brother organization, RPDG (Network for Peace and Development in Guatemala) mobilized successfully to petition for Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

TPS means that deportations from the US to Guatemala are temporarily on hold until the country recovers from these natural disasters.

Here Lucia is interviewed for her perspective on how these disasters disproportionately affect women.
