Honduran migrant caravan arrives at Guatemala border

OCOTOPEQUE, Honduras (AP) — Hundreds of Honduran migrants have arrived at the Guatemalan border hoping to make it to new lives in the United States, far from the poverty and violence of their home nation.

They came under a broiling sun Monday singing the Honduran national anthem, praying and chanting, “Yes, we can!”

Many are traveling light with just backpacks and bottles of water. Some pushed toddlers in strollers or carried them on their shoulders.

An estimated 1,600-plus people are in the caravan. The migrants insist they will travel through Guatemala and Mexico despite Guatemalan authorities’ insistence that they will not be allowed to pass.
