It was announced that a new caravan of Honduran migrants will leave their country in hopes of reaching the United States when President-elect Joe Biden takes office on January 20. It was just on January 1 that this formation was announced, after two failed attempts in October 2020.

This happens a few days before a meeting established with Mexican authorities to discuss, precisely, migration issues with Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador; one of the topics of the meeting will be the irregular migration of the caravans, particularly the one announced.

According to the Government of Guatemala, it is preparing a plan for the arrival that is believed to occur next week in its territory. This plan will seek to contain and control the group, in addition to promoting humanitarian assistance for the members of the caravan.

Mark Morgan, head of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), sent a message to people considering joining the caravans asking them not to waste their time or money and not to put their health and safety at risk.

One of the reasons why this type of caravan has been seen (which has not been successful so far), is because of the violence in these countries, in addition to the lack of work, a situation that was already delicate before the coronavirus pandemic and which has only worsened.
