We will try to travel by caravan or alone: a migrant who circumvented security
Tapachula, Chiapas.- Despite the sealing of the southern border, by elements of the Navy, Mexican Army, National Guard, and immigration agents, the migrants from Honduras who travel by caravan continue their way along the Suchiate River with the idea of reaching the United States.
Despite the fact that the Guatemalan authorities maintain a military operation to stop the passage of Hondurans, some of the foreigners have managed to circumvent security, but have been secured in Ciudad Hidalgo by federal agents.
Maximino Meras Herrera, originally from Ceibo, Honduras, is one of the migrants who arrived in Ciudad Hidalgo, circumventing all the operations in Guatemala, however, he was secured on the borders of Mexico and Guatemala.
Meras Herrera pointed out that thousands of Hondurans were traveling in the caravan that left San Pedro Sula Honduras on October 1, with the intention of reaching the United States.
Difficult the journey to get to Mexico
This migrant, who traveled in the first caravan and who defied the coronavirus pandemic, with the more than 3,000 Hondurans who left the United States, confronted the elements of the Guatemalan Army, were arrested and returned to their country of origin.
He reported that for migrants, the situation has become very difficult, because the Guatemalan government no longer allowed them to circulate through that country, “imagine that they return you from Guatemala and those of us who come with the illusion of improving the quality of life, that it ends in a matter of seconds and we have to go back where we started ”.
The Honduran who was able to observe all the operations carried out by the Guatemalan Army to dismantle the caravan said that thousands of migrants leave their lives risking and there are even those who lose their lives on the way.
He said that in order to reach Mexico, it has become a true way of the cross, due to the different operations that both nations have.
Although his future is uncertain, he recalled that he intends to return or try to migrate until they reach the United States, which is the destiny of Hondurans to improve their quality of life, because everyone is fleeing poverty, misery, insecurity and lack of jobs.
UNCOMMUNICATED WITH HIS FAMILY.
Since last October 1, when he left his country, he had no communication with his family, so he is concerned that his two daughters and his wife have no news of him, because most of the migrants have been returned.
Meras Herrera, emphasized that by being detained by immigration agents, he will be able to be safe, eat and see the possibility that the Mexican government can give him a permit to work in whatever, since he seeks to obtain resources for his family and be legally in Mexican territory.
Like this Honduran, small groups of migrants who circumvented border security have been detained and put on migration transports.
A total of 23,811 undocumented Hondurans have been returned to their country during the first semester, which is 59.6% less than the 58,969 deportees in the same period of 2019, according to a report from the Honduran Consular and Migration Observatory.
Of all Honduran migrants, the United States deported 10,614, Mexico 12,684, and Central American countries 513, according to the report.
