TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras.- Casa Alianza NGO predicted a massive exit of Honduran children, who will embark on their journey alone or accompanied by their parents, in another caravan of migrants to the United States.
Jaime Flores, Coordinator of the Observatory on the Rights of Children and Young People of Honduras, warned this will be a mega-caravan and many of those children are victims of crime, forced displacement and cannot access the teaching system in that country.
Honduras has a high homicide rate, which is why it is considered one of the most violent countries in the world. Gangs and drug trafficking generate a situation of fear that forces thousands of them to flee that nation every week.
Poverty in that Central American country increased considerably between 2014 and 2017, and several middle-class families decided to migrate.
