Mexico – Caravan Of Honduras Immigrants Heading For US Border Too Large To Stop

A large group of Central Americans, mostly from Honduras, has been marching for a few days in Mexico heading to the US border. Given the size of their caravan (about 1,500 people), none of the Mexican authorities have made an effort to stop them so far, even though they are in the country without authorization.

Organized by an NGO called Pueblos Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders, the volunteers stated that the sheer size of their group should scare off both Mexican authorities and criminals wanting to assault them.

Most of them claim they are fleeing Honduras as the political unrest spread when President Juan Orlando Hernandez was sworn in after a contested election in 2017. They chant “out with JOH,” “we aren't immigrants, we're international workers” and “the people united will never be defeated.”

Twenty-nine-year-old Mateo Juan: “Going alone is risky. You're risking an accident, getting jumped by robbers, and even your life.”

“All of that, and then you don't get to the United States. The caravan is slower but you know you're going to get there safely.”

A Honduras mother walking with her two young kids called Karen said: “The crime rate is horrible, you can't live there.”

“After the president was sworn in it got worse. There were deaths, mobs, robbed homes, adults and kids were beaten up.”

By Friday afternoon, the group had set up camp in Santiago Niltepec, in Mexico's Oaxaca state.
