President of Guatemala warns of new migrant caravan

The president of Guatemala warned Monday {that a} potential new migrant caravan was forming in Honduras.

President Alejandro Giammattei stated the nation would crack down on open-air gatherings and non-permitted demonstrations as a result of burgeoning caravan.

The so-called “state of prevention” introduced by Giammattei would limit such get-togethers over the subsequent two weeks in 5 Guatemalan provinces that border Honduras.

In an announcement to the Related Press, the Guatemalan authorities stated that the measures are vital as a result of “teams of folks may put in danger the life, liberty, safety, well being, entry to justice, peace and growth” of Guatemalans.

Guatemala issued the same decree this previous January in a bid to cease one other caravan on the grounds that it posed a public well being danger as a result of coronavirus pandemic.

The tried crackdown led to clashes between Guatemalan police and troopers and a bunch of about 2,000 Honduran migrants at a roadblock.

A number of caravans of Central American migrants, many of them from Honduras, have tried to achieve the U.S. border by way of Guatemala and Mexico, however none have succeeded in doing so since 2019.

The most recent Guatemala restrictions come amid a surge within the quantity of migrants making an attempt to cross the U.S.-Mexico border.

In February, American authorities encountered greater than 100,000 migrants on the southern border, probably the most since 2019.
