Guatemala fears 1,400 buried in mudslide

This came in yesterday from Meredith Brown at mbvisa@sbcglobal.net. She is the Immediate Past Chair, Immigration Section, Los Angeles County Bar Association ;

"Actually the figure might be over 5,000 killed in Guatemala, and the devastation is pretty serious. We are organizing a formal request through the Guatemalan government Guatemalan leaders and various NGOs for the official designation of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Guatemala, given the degree of devastation in that country in particular. Anyone with special ties to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales or to the Bush Administration, please let us know.

Please let me know if you are interested--we will be circulating a petition, doing press, and other activities in support of TPS for Guatemala. Finally, please let's support the reconstruction efforts there (more details to come)".
