They're Back! New 'March of the Migrant' Hondurans Headed to US

Hondurans fleeing poverty and violence are seen here in San Pedro Sula. They're headed toward the U.S

Mr. Trump made a similar threat in April when a caravan of more than 1,200 migrants left Honduras for the U.S. That time, the caravan dwindled as it approached the U.S. border, thanks in part to Mexico granting refugee status to some participants.

A day before the caravan formed, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence had urged leaders in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala to persuade their citizens to stay home and avoid the long, risky journey to the United States.

More than 1,000 people, including families and women carrying babies, set off on Saturday from Honduras towards the United States in a mass migration march.

Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez said last month cuts in USA support for Central America would hinder efforts to stem illegal immigration as he welcomed China's growing diplomatic presence in the region as an "opportunity".

The Trump administration announced in May that it would stop granting protections by January 2020 to the 57,000 Hondurans now living in the US legally.

After those encounters, Mexico's immigration authority sent out a fresh warning late Monday that the migrants would have to satisfy Mexican officials individually and that only those meeting requirements would be allowed to enter.

China is strengthening ties with Central America.

"To the people of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador: You are our neighbors", Pence said at a regional security event in Washington.

Trump said in a tweet that he had told Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández that if the migrants are not returned to Honduras, the United States will cease all aid to Honduras, effective immediately.

According to Bartolo Fuentes, the organizer and former MP, the caravan, dubbed "March of the Migrant", departed from the northern Honduran town of San Pedro Sula and plans to cross over into Mexico through neighboring Guatemala.

The hundreds of people fleeing poverty and violence in Honduras bedded down wherever they could, with some sleeping on the grass in a church parking lot; others crowded the floors of a migrant shelter and a sports hall. Guatemalan police initially blocked migrants from reaching a customs booth, Reuters images showed.

Trump campaigned for president in 2016 on promises to toughen US immigration policies and build a wall along the 2,000-mile border with Mexico.
