Guatemalan family mourns accountant daughter shot dead on U.S. border

Guatemalan family mourns accountant daughter shot dead on U.S. borderBy Sofia Menchu SAN JUAN OSTUNCALCO, Guatemala (Reuters) – For Claudia Gomez, the 19-year old indigenous Guatemalan who was shot last week by a border patrol officer, the chance for a better life in the United States outweighed worries about a crackdown at the border, her family said on Sunday. Gomez grew up in the village of San Juan Ostuncalco, surrounded by cinder block homes built with dollars sent home by relatives in the United States and a road the community had paved with a collection of remittances. Interviewed at their home, her parents said she had set off despite what they had heard about tougher policies toward illegal immigrants under U.S. President Donald Trump.
