New caravan heading to US makes first border crossing in Guatemala

Roughly 500 Honduran migrants arrived Wednesday at the Guatemalan border as they trek toward the U.S. border, according to The Associated Press.

The groups of migrants included dozens of children and individuals who say they are fleeing poverty and dim economic prospects in Honduras. Roughly 200 Guatemalan police officers and soldiers oversaw the group as it arrived at the border, according to the report.

Migrants displayed their documents to security personnel at the Agua Caliente border crossing, the AP reported.

The group of migrants departed the Honduran city of San Pedro Sula on Monday. Roughly 600 people were traveling in the group, with roughly 300 climbing aboard buses and another 300 walking.

It was unclear whether the caravan would head for Tijuana, Mexico, the AP reported, where thousands of migrants from previous caravans have remained in recent months.
