SPECIAL – The Honduran Caravan: “Everyone is hell-bent against them”

 

 

In this Special Edition of Only in America, Alex Mensing, Project Coordinator for Pueblos Sin Fronteras, talked to Ali from the Mexican side of the Guatemalan border, where a caravan of migrants were  preparing for another leg of their desperate journey northwards towards Mexico City.

Alex says the contingent, mostly of women and children, is fleeing poverty, violence and oppression by the regime in Honduras. He says the migrants feel like everyone – from Mexico, to Trump’s United States – is “hell-bent against them.”
