The ‘March of the migrant’ began on October 13, 2018. The over 1,000 Central Americans comprised mostly of Hondurans, Salvadorans and some Guatemalans made their way to Mexico last week after the group had swollen to thousands.
They left Honduras en route to the United States of America just days after Central American leaders had met with United States Vice President, Mike Pence to discuss migration.
US President Donald Trump had threatened to cut assistance to Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras for failing to halt the migrant caravan.
The migrants, however, are proceeding on their journey to the Mexico-US Border.
Earlier this week, US President Donald Trump informed, “I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency”. “They [migrants] will be stopped!” he said in a tweet.
The caravan is currently in Arriaga, Mexico.
The migrants are fleeing their country due to poverty and crime.
