A caravan of migrants hoping to enter the U.S. reached the Honduran-Guatemalan border over the weekend, Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei’s office told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
The caravan, which is largely composed of Venezuelans, arrived Sunday and had around 2,000 migrants when it began amassing at Guatemala’s border with Honduras in the towns of El Cinchado and Corinto, Giammattei’s spokesman Kevin Oliva told the DCNF.
“Overall, we know that people don’t want to come to Guatemala to stay. We are a country of transit. It’s not lawful for them to get through because of the regional security,” Oliva said.
“We asked for help to our partners in North America. However, at this time, only Mexico has provided us support,” Oliva added.
