Corrupt and undemocratic actors who will be denied entry to U.S.

The legislation Act (H.R. 2615) has two main components: (1) It requires the publication of a list of corrupt and undemocratic actors from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras who wil be denied entry to the United States (some in Central America have started to refer to this as the “Engel list”); and (2) it requires the creation of a five-year strategy from the Secretary of State and USAID Administrator on efforts to advance prosperity, combat corruption, strengthen democratic governance and improve civilian security in the Northern Triangle and curb irregular migration.

The United States Sanctions Guatemalan Officials for Corruption
PRESS STATEMENT

ANTONY J. BLINKEN, SECRETARY OF STATE

APRIL 26, 2021


Today, the United States is imposing sanctions on one current and one former Guatemalan government official—Gustavo Adolfo Alejos Cambara and Felipe Alejos Lorenzana, respectively—for their role in corruption in Guatemala.

Gustavo Alejos and Felipe Alejos sought to interfere with the judicial selection process for appointing magistrates to Guatemala’s Supreme Court of Justice (CSJ) and Court of Appeals. Gustavo Alejos served as chief of staff for the 2008-2012 Alvaro Colom presidential administration, and Felipe Alejos is an elected delegate to the Congress of the Republic of Guatemala for the 2020-2024 term. Together, they reportedly facilitated payments to congressional representatives and judges in an attempt to influence the selection process for magistrates to both courts and to secure favorable judicial rulings that would protect Gustavo Alejos—as well as CSJ judges —from current and future corruption prosecutions.

Gustavo Alejos and Felipe Alejos are designated pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13818, which builds upon and implements the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act and targets perpetrators of serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world. These sanctions also reinforce actions taken last year by the U.S. Department of State to publicly designate both individuals, and their immediate family members, under Section 7031(c) of the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act due to their involvement in significant corruption.

These sanctions support efforts by the people of Guatemala to end the scourge of corruption, as part of the U.S. government’s commitment to support improvements in governance in Guatemala. Led by Vice President Kamala Harris, as well as Special Envoy for the Northern Triangle Ricardo Zuniga, these commitments target reforms that will improve transparency and the rule of law and lead to better conditions for the good of the Guatemalan people so they can build a brighter future.

These sanction actions are undertaken in close coordination with the United Kingdom and coincide with the establishment of its new anti-corruption sanctions regime. By coordinating with like-minded global partners, we can more effectively combat corruption, including by disrupting access to the international financial system by corrupt actors and their networks. The United States will continue to engage closely with its allies to impose tangible and significant consequences on corrupt actors.

Torres: List of Corrupt Officials Shines Light on Dark Secrets of N. Triangle Authoritarians
List of Corrupt Actors
May 18, 2021 Press Release
WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Norma J. Torres (CA-35), the sole Central American serving in Congress and Co-Chair of the Central Americans Caucus, today praised a list prepared and released at her request by the U.S. State Department identifying corrupt officials in the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

The report provides names of officials for whom credible information exists about committing corrupt acts, including narcotics trafficking and the receipt or disbursement of political financing tied to narcotics trafficking.

Among the findings:

The list includes current and former government officials from all three countries, exposing that this is an ongoing and pressing issue.
Many of those included were already indicted or investigated by anti-corruption mechanisms. It is not surprising why they then fought so hard to obstruct and shut down these bodies.
It also highlights the depths of corruption in the inner circles of those in power. Leadership cannot claim to fight corruption, while surrounding themselves with the corrupt.
This is the second report to Congress about corrupt Central American officials that comes at Rep. Torres’ request.

Congresswoman Torres released the following statement:

“In the report I requested, which is now public, the U.S. government acknowledges the corruption that Central American authoritarians and their henchmen deny and try to hide,” Rep. Norma J. Torres said. “The truth is we already know that Central American governments are plagued by corruption – crooked officials in the region shut down successful anti-corruption mechanisms like CICIG and MACCIH, and weakened the role of CICIES; they continue to interfere with independent investigations and block oversight bodies; Guatemalan elites stacked the courts with cronies to cover their interests; and the President in El Salvador campaigned on anti-corruption while surrounding himself with corrupt actors.

“That is exactly why this list is so important – after four years of neglect under the previous administration, it publicly puts these actors on notice and advances the prospect of accountability,” Torres continued. “U.S. support must only go to institutions and officials who are truly committed to the rule of law – anyone trying to enrich themselves should think twice if they hope to partner with us. I will be relentless in demanding accountability from our government – if we know someone is corrupt, I expect our government to use all levers at our disposal, including sanctions, visa restrictions, withholding support to deter future acts of corruption, and dismantling the systems that allow corruption to occur.

“We cannot expect the people of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to thrive at home while their elected officials are more focused on self-enrichment than serving the public,” Torres added. “This list is a strong step, but it is only the first step towards holding those officials accountable. I have had extensive conversations with the Biden Administration about centering our policy and support to the region around the importance of anti-corruption and rule of law. I look forward to working with State and Treasury to ensure we leverage these tools for strong actions. I will continue to fight for the people of the region until we can proudly say the rule of law stands in the Northern Triangle, and corruption does not.

“I will continue to work with the Administration to deal with other obvious corrupt actors, such as the President of Honduras. I look forward to an expanded list in June.”

The unclassified list requested by Rep. Torres is available in two parts here and here.

Torres has long worked to hold corrupt officials accountable and ensure U.S. funding benefits the people who need it. Prior to securing this report in the FY21 Omnibus funding bill, Torres had requested and received two previous reports on corrupt actors in Central America. Additionally, she leveraged her position on the powerful House Appropriations Committee to eliminate military funding to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. More about Rep. Torres’ work on Central America is available here.

This designation is made under Section 7031(c) of the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2021. Under this authority, once the Secretary of State designates officials of foreign governments for their involvement, directly or indirectly, in significant corruption, those individuals and their immediate family members are ineligible for entry into the United States. In addition to España, the Department is publicly designating the following members of España’s immediate family: his spouse, Liliana Maria Umaña Lemus de España; his daughter, Karol Andrea España Umaña; and his minor child.

This designation reaffirms U.S. commitment to combatting the corruption and impunity that plagues Guatemala and other nations in the region. The Department will use all available tools to promote accountability for corrupt actors in this region and globally.

For more information, please contact INL-PAPD@state.gov.

The Central American Women and Children Protection Act would allow the Secretary of State to suspend or terminate assistance authorized by this Act to any of the three countries if it is determined that the country’s government is engaged in activities that are contrary to the national security interests of the United States, has engaged in a pattern of actions inconsistent with the criteria used to determine the eligibility of the country, or if the country has failed to make sufficient progress to meet the goals of the Compact.

The Central American Women and Children Protection Act previously passed out of the House of Representatives in the 116th Congress. For more information, click here.
