Haiti - Social : More than 400 migrants stranded at the Guatemalan border
On Saturday September 25, 2022, the Guatemalan authorities arrested at the Corinto border post with Honduras (Northeast Dept. of Izabal) a group of more than 400 migrants, including children without legal documents to enter Honduras and pregnant women in from Venezuela, Haiti and Cuba, who were trying to reach Mexico and then reach the United States, reported Alejandra Mena, Spokesperson for the Guatemalan Migration Institute (IGM).

The Government of Guatemala has activated a migratory attention protocol after locating the migrants because, according to the IGM, another large group may attempt to enter Guatemalan territory from Honduras in the same way very soon.

Despite their irregular migration situation, 121 migrants were admitted for humanitarian reasons, including women (including 3 pregnant) and children who needed help for various reasons. The Red Cross, the Office of the Attorney General of Honduras and representatives of United Nations agencies were present. The other migrants were not allowed to enter the territory of Honduras.

Let's recall that Guatemala is a corridor for thousands of migrants of other nationalities fleeing poverty, violence and lack of opportunities in their country and trying to reach American territory in search of better living conditions.
