New caravan of at least 1K migrants forming in Honduras, bound for U.S.

Yet another migrant caravan bound for the U.S. is forming in Honduras. According to reports Wednesday, at least 1,000 migrants have joined the new caravan as it prepares to depart for the United States-Mexico border.

The caravan is the fourth large group of migrants to leave Honduras since last October, and it includes families and young children. It reportedly formed as a result of a “mobilization campaign” on social media.

Members of the caravan are citing rampant crime and unemployment in Honduras as the reason to leave their country and request asylum in the U.S.

“The economic situation is really difficult. The wages are not enough. I don’t have a house. I have five children, and the government here doesn’t do anything for the people. We are afraid, but I believe it’s good to try to make it to the United States.” — Nohemy Reyes, Honduran migrant

Department of Homeland Security officials have stressed economic hardship and crime in the migrants’ home country does not qualify them for asylum in the U.S.
