Julio Embajador

The Ambassador

In 2013 Julio Ligorría accepted the appointment as Guatemalan Ambassador to the Government of the United States of America.

He was appointed for his political and crisis management experience. The humanitarian crisis of unaccompanied minors who arrived at the southern border of the United States from the countries of the Central American Northern Triangle (64 THOUSAND in 2014 alone) broke out while he was on assignment in Washington, D.C. Ambassador Ligorría led the Guatemalan Embassy team and worked with his colleagues from El Salvador and Honduras to prioritize the migrant issue agenda, which served to coordinate efforts and to cooperate with the United States. The outcomes of these efforts were that, in one year, the number of unaccompanied minors detained at the border dropped considerably, detained migrants began receiving better treatment and more respect was shown for their rights.
