Honduran and Guatemalan presidents will analyze migration issue in Honduras

Authorities have reported that part of Central Americans who left in a caravan to the United States have given up and returned to their countries.

The president of Honduras, Juan Orlando Hernández, will receive today his Guatemalan counterpart, Jimmy Morales, to analyze the immigration issue at a time when thousands of Central Americans, mostly Hondurans, travel in caravan to the United States. Hernandez will receive Morales in Tegucigalpa around 10.00 local time (16.00 GMT) and then offer a lunch in his honor, according to the agenda.

The Guatemalan head of state arrives in the Honduran capital as part of a tour that already took him to the United States and will conclude in El Salvador, to analyze the migration issue.

This is the second time that Hernández and Morales meet in less than two weeks.

Migration crisis involves Central America

Already last October 20 they met in Guatemala City and presented a "safe return" plan to solve the migratory "tragedy" that is experienced in the region with the phenomenon of migrant caravans.

The US and Mexico deported more than 21,000 Salvadorans between January and October

The first caravan, with some 3,000 people, left San Pedro Sula (Honduras) on October 13 and at least two others joined with non-Sun citizens from that country but also from El Salvador and Guatemala, according to the available data.

Authorities have reported that part of Central Americans who left in a caravan to the United States have given up and returned to their countries.

This Sunday thousands of Central American migrants dispersed in groups in the Mexican state of Veracruz were on foot or in all types of vehicles to the state of Puebla, as a stopover prior to their arrival in Mexico City.
