Hondurans Stopped at Salvadoran Border Swim across River

SAN SALVADOR – A caravan of Honduran migrants trapped at the Salvadoran border made for the river separating the two countries on Thursday.

A score of people, including children, broke off from the some 100 Hondurans who were not able to cross the Salvadoran border on Wednesday either.

The migrants, many of whom lack the proper documents to enter El Salvador, waited overnight for an opportunity to cross the border early Thursday, but to no avail.

Given the situation, a few of them ventured across the Goascoran River, despite of the fact that an intense rain had caused the river to swell dangerously.

EFE witnessed the Hondurans reach the Salvadoran shore of the river to then continue their journey to the Guatemalan border.

An additional group – consisting of more than 400 Hondurans – had earlier entered El Salvador without problem and continued their journey to the United States.

Salvadoran immigration officials said that those who entered the country did so with the required documents.

Most of the Hondurans left behind at the border with El Amatillo are traveling with minors.

The migrants – most of who are women and children – set out toward the US following President Donald Trump’s threat to cut aid unless the some 3,000 Honduras desist from crossing the US-Mexico border.
