Honduran migrants head for Guatemala border as police wait

  • 0

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras (AP) — About 200 migrants have begun walking up a highway toward the border with Guatemala two days before a migrant caravan is scheduled to depart. Some 75 police officers dressed in riot gear waited late Wednesday at a point farther along the highway on the outskirts of San Pedro Sula. One officer says the intention is to stop the migrants for violating a pandemic-related curfew. The migrants face the additional challenge of governments that agreed earlier this week to enforce immigration laws at their borders.
