-Central America Denounces that migratory flows are organized for political purposes
-Cuba declares new Magna Carta violates international law
-López Obrador hopes that the condemnation of "El Chapo" will serve as a lesson

Guaidó gives an ultimatum to the army for the entry of humanitarian aid.

The self-proclaimed president of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, announced that on February 23 humanitarian aid would enter the country.

Guaidó, who continues to garner support among the international community, urged the people to take to the streets, in what he hopes will be the greatest demonstration in Venezuela's history.
As interim president, he ordered the Armed Forces to facilitate the entry of international food and medicine across the border.
Nikolas Maduro and the army refuse to allow the entry of humanitarian aid because they claim that there is a possibility of foreign intervention.

Central America Denounce that migratory flows are organized for political purposes.

Experts denounced on Tuesday that migrants from caravans heading to the United States are being used and deceived for political ends.

Guatemalan intel head Mario Duarte revealed that both non-governmental organizations and sectors of the Honduran political opposition have been responsible for organizing and directing the caravans.
He indicated that the migrants are being used as simple weapons of destabilization and political delegitimization against the president of the United States, Donald Trump.
Joseph Humire, an expert in national security and counter-terrorism, said that the migratory flow is also trying to destabilize Latin America.

Cuba declares new Magna Carta violates international law

The OAS believes that the constitution promoted by the Cuban regime, which will be voted on February 24, could violate international law, and called an extraordinary meeting on Friday.

Jaime Aparicio, former president of the Inter-American Judicial Committee, convened Tuesday by the organization, said the new Magna Carta lacks fundamental guarantees.
He said that it supports all the rights of the individual to the dictates of socialist ideology and that any disobedience is considered treason.
He also indicated that the referendum does not comply with the fundamental principles of the inter-American system.
And that, therefore, the OAS Charter could be invoked, and Cuba's relations with member states could be penalized.
Also, Laritza Diversent, Director of the Cubalex Democratic Studies Center that promotes reforms in the Cuban legal system, confirmed that the constitution supports the application of the Law to the interests of the Communist Party.
He explained that it contains a large number of legal loopholes and ambiguities that would favor an increase in repression.
Opposition leader Rosa María Payá Acevedo called on the international community not to recognize the results of the referendum, as happened with Maduro's second term in Venezuela.

López Obrador hopes that the condemnation of "El Chapo" will serve as a lesson.

The president of Mexico said he hopes the imminent life sentence imposed on Mexican drug trafficker Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman will serve as a lesson.

López Obrador declared that one should think about the precious gift that is freedom and about the respect that one owes to others.
He then indicated that investigations would continue into the officials who, according to "El Chapo," accepted bribes, including former President Peña Nieto.
On Tuesday, a U.S. court found Guzman guilty of all charges against him, including commanding a worldwide drug trafficking network.
