U.S. Border Immigrant Caravan

Ana Flood, Staff Writer

On October 12, about 120 migrants began the long journey from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, to the U.S. border. Various migrants are fleeing Honduras from horrible conditions such as violence and poverty. Their hope is to seek refuge in America to create a better future for themselves and their children. While the journey only started with a few, the number has suddenly begun to multiply. Now, there are about 7,322 migrants and the organizers claim more and more people are beginning to join. Once they reach the border, migrants hope to be able to apply for asylum. Yet, for many migrants, the future is a mystery and lays in the hands of President Trump. Despite the unknown, these migrants are still walking or waiting with passion, courage, and the hope of a better life.
