Alert-10-2020 Migrant Caravan Honduras

During the night of Wednesday the 30 September 2020, the city of San Pedro Sula in Honduras was
the meeting point for approximately 2000 people who organized themselves via social media to leave
Honduras in an effort to reach the United States. This is the first Caravan (the name these massive
migration efforts are given by media) since the Covid19 outbreak and since Guatemala has become
part of an agreement as a third-safer country signed with USA in 2019. In consequence transit in
Guatemala and Mexico is riskier due to reinforced security measures and an increased rejection
towards migrants in these countries. CASM expects that in the following days, returnees will
massively arrive to San Pedro Sula. This alert is to provide assistance for a dignified and secured
return.Alert Honduras Migrant Caravan
