While President Jimmy Morales is putting forth a strong stance on the border dispute and making announcements on the increase of naval officers at the Sarstoon and the western border, there are persons from Guatemala who are saying that this is a political ploy by Morales to distract the citizens from crucial issues affecting the country.  Love News understands that with only a few months at the head of the republic, Morales is already facing harsh criticisms and dissatisfaction regarding basic necessities to his people, namely, water and healthcare.  Today, there is reportedly a massive demonstration taking place in the capital city by some rural residents.  It is reported that since he has taken over as President, Morales has drastically cut the budget for those essential services and residents are up in arms over that decision.
