A group of 1,300 Hondurans are marching and hope to be in Mexico soon, where they hope to either get refugee status or get a visa allowing them to continue to the US border. They may find it rough going in Mexico as the new president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, is Trump friendly and at Trump’s request could very well stop the caravan in it’s tracks. He is better known in Mexico by his initials, AMLO. He and the president worked on the NAFTA plan successfully and he seems to have decided that working with the United States is in Mexico’s best interest.
The caravan is coming despite President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policies on illegal immigration.
“I believe we’ll get to the United States,” Fanny Barahona, 35, an unemployed teacher, told the news outlet. “There’s no work in Honduras, and you live in fear that they’re going to kill you or your children.”
Barahona was walking with her nine-year-old son and was carrying her a two-year-old daughter, according to the report.
In April, Trump called for tougher border security and demanded a similar group of migrants be denied entry. People from that group also told media they were “fleeing death threats, extortion and violence from powerful street gangs.”
On Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence met with the presidents of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in Washington. Pence told them that the United States would help them economically but that they had to put a stop to the mass migration from their countries. Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez was less than cooperative.
