Guatemala City, Jan 18 (EFE).- Guatemalan security forces on Monday dispersed a migrant caravan made up of more than 6,000 Hondurans looking to head northwards to the United States.

EFE learned that some 500 National Civil Police officers and Guatemalan army soldiers ousted the Honduran migrants from along the eastern Guatemalan highway where they had remained stranded since the weekend after Guatemalan authorities refused to allow them to proceed.

The security forces first gave the migrants 10 minutes to clear the roadway, then they began pushing them off, after which the migrants dispersed in different directions.

Some of the migrants reportedly were slightly injured in the confrontation, but Guatemalan authorities have not yet released information regarding their condition.

The Guatemalan Immigration Institute had told journalists at 9:20 am local time Monday that the caravan “remains concentrated” on a highway in Chiquimula province, some 200 kilometers (125 miles) east of Guatemala City and a few kilometers from the border with Honduras.

Earlier in the morning, EFE reported that the contingents of National Civil Police and Guatemalan army troops deployed at the site had been increased, with those forces having prevented the caravan from moving forward since Saturday.

The Hondurans were part of a migrant caravan of more than 9,000 people, according to official calculations, having departed from San Pedro Sula, in northern Honduras, in several phases last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

The group that was stranded along the highway included about 6,000 migrants, while some of the other 3,000 Hondurans in the caravan had managed to move forward and others had been dispersing or had started back to their homes.

The members of the caravan lined up illegally on Friday night and Saturday morning at the El Florida border crossing post, in Chiquimula province and just 20 km from where the larger group finds itself detained.

The migrants were aiming to get to the US seeking better living conditions, far from the poverty and violence besetting the Central American region, especially since the coronavirus pandemic hit and Hurricanes Eta and Iota blasted the area last November.

The Guatemalan Immigration Institute also said that vehicle traffic in the area had been “halted” because of the presence of the migrants along the roadway.

The great majority of the Hondurans are refusing to backtrack even after on Sunday morning the Guatemalan army and police forcefully prevented them from moving forward.

Guatemalan authorities will not let the migrants continue their journey unless they test negative for Covid-19, according to the Guatemalan Immigration Institute.

According to official sources, almost 1,600 Hondurans have been returned to their country by Guatemalan authorities over the past four days.

This may be fake -- the GOPUSA brand apparently has a checkered history and I've always assumed these 'caravans' to be assembled in Mexico from ppl shipped in from elsewhere by rich commie manipulators. These mobs surely CANNOT be WALKING all the way up from here -- 1850 miles thru Mexico alone?

On the other hand it could be true.

They could be. While these are not "refugees" in the real meaning of the term, they are, for all practical purposes, in the same condition. All they need is food & water to keep going. They likely have very few possessions to carry with them as they had few possessions to begin with.

I have sympathy for them, but they have to be helped, or help themselves, in their home countries. For the US, it means that finding a way to improve economic conditions in these latin countries is one way to keep illegals from entering the USA. It should be considered that one reason for the disparity in economic well being is the US dollar being the world reserve currency. We get to print up all the currency we want and trade it away internationally to suck up a disproportionate amount of the worlds produced goods.

For however much longer that's possible, at least.

Agree 100%. If DC has trillions to throw away on wars of choice and to simply lose track of, it could solve a hell of a lot of problems worldwide. THEY HAVE ALL THE MONEY THEY NEED FOR THE EVILS THEY WANT TO DO -- instantly, publish on demand.

It costs 135 times as much to help them there as here -- but unfortunately, ameriKa and ameriKans mostly have no intention. Even do- gooder preachers carrying white church youth down there to putter about look good compared to the DC demoniacs --well most people on earth do.

And never forget, the events of 9-11-2001 were an administrative coup d'état. George W. Bush was handed his head on that date. ;)

I love how satirists like This Modern World satirized Georgie-poo trying to kéep up with the agénda whose face he suddénly was. TMW compassionately showéd him as clueless and anxious, which he was on alternaté days of the week.

Love that accent -- I borrowed a cup of it ;)

That, unfortunately, is an apt description of his tenure in the Oval Office.

He initiated the invasion of Afghanistan supposedly to capture Osama bin Laden, who was as we all know, merely another scapegoat for the attacks of 9-11-2001. ;)

At the same time, alas -- on alternate dates of the week, shall we say -- he's been the smuggest little bastard on earth about the whole deal.

The audio on there is horrible. They both sound like Mickey Mouse.

But an old buddy of mine from Chicago joined the Marines. He was in Beirut when the barracks was bombed. Lucky he was not in there at the time.

He got out after 10 years and joined the DEA. He told me some great stories about our fearless leaders and drugs.

One time when Bubba was Governor of Arkansas, they tapped the private phone line in the governor's mansion. They got Bill on the line telling the party on the other end, "Yeah, go pick up another pound (of coke)". Bill Clinton has a perforated septum. A hole in his nose from doing too much good coke. I wonder if he can whistle Dixie thru that hole?

Then they got the Bush brothers, Jeb and George, on video tape in Miami picking up a kilo of coke. It must have been a big party. And I bet that video has been lost a long time ago. ;)

It's not the audio -- the mousy voices are part of the satire ;)

Wish we could put a ring thru Bubba's nose hole and hitch it to AOC's ego.
