By BBN Staff: The ‘March of the Migrant’, as it has been termed, is currently at the Guatemala-Mexico border seeking help from Mexico to enter their territory.
The march began with a little over 1,000 Hondurans last week Saturday just days after Central American leaders had met with US Vice president, Mike Pence to discuss migration.
Today, the group has swollen to over 4,000 Central Americans en route to the United States of America in search for a better life.
During this week, United States President Donald Trump threatened several Central American countries to cut US assistance if the leaders do not halt the migrant caravan.
However, on Wednesday, Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales said that he rejects ‘conditions’ being placed on foreign aid: “No help can be conditional and no help can be demanded.”
Morales is to meet with Honduran president Juan Orlando Hernandez to discuss the migration crisis.
Meanwhile, Trump remains focused on border security and strict migration policies.
