Alejandro Giammatei said : “We’re dying of hunger and are just looking for a country that can offer us life with dignity". On Thursday, members of the latest caravan maneuvered past immigration officials to enter Guatemala before beginning the several-day trek toward the Mexican border. Ariel, a 26-year-old who asked to be identified only by his first name because he fears retribution from authorities back home, said he decided to join the caravan because he was kidnapped for ransom five months ago by police officers. He said he learned about the caravan forming on social media. As for its timing of the caravan, he said migrants left this week because until a few weeks ago, the country's borders were closed as a coronavirus precaution. Just days after Honduras confirmed its first cases of COVID-19 on March 10, President Juan Orlando Hernández ordered a near-complete lockdown of the country, closing its borders and issuing a that required people to stay in their homes except for a few hours each week. Those swift actions may have spared Honduras from a mass outbreak — the nation has seen just over 2,380 coronavirus deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. But human rights advocates say officials in Honduras have used the curfew to justify a military crackdown, and more than 63,000 people have been arrested for breaking curfew in recent months, including journalists and activists. Many businesses have closed, hunger is widespread, and evictions have spiked, forcing families into the streets. Hernández, who several years ago admitted that his campaign had been funded in part by millions of dollars stolen from the country’s Social Security Institute, and who was recently named by U.S. prosecutors as a co-conspirator in a drug trafficking case against his younger brother, has been linked to another corruption scandal. A recent government audit of the Honduran agency tasked with procuring medical supplies to fight the coronavirus found tens of millions of dollars wasted. "Where's the money?" read large banners that have sprung up across the country in recent months. Migrants have been leaving the country in large groups since at least 2017, inspired in part by annual "Stations of the Cross" processions in Mexico, where activists marched during Lent to bring attention to that country's harsh immigration enforcement. They say that there is safety in numbers and that traveling together means they don't have to pay smugglers for protection. The caravans didn't capture widespread U.S. attention until 2018, when Trump began frequently tweeting about them, saying they proved the U.S. needed to build a border wall. When a group of 7,000 mostly Central American migrants headed north shortly before the midterm elections, Trump seized on the issue and sent soldiers to the border. Many of the migrants in that caravan ended up stranded in Tijuana and other border cities after the Trump administration issued a rule requiring asylum seekers to wait in Mexico for their immigration court cases in the U.S. Some headed back to Honduras, while others built lives in Mexico. It is unclear whether the current caravan will make it into Mexico. Guatemala President Alejandro Giammattei said in a video address Thursday that migrants who are apprehended will be deported. "The order has been given to detain all those who entered illegally, and return them to the border of their country,” “We will not allow any foreigner who has used illegal methods to enter the country to think that they have the right to come and infect us and put us at serious risk” External link

Erika Guevara Rosas concluded ( about Alejandro Giammatei ) : “President Alejandro Giammattei’s government must ensure that people are able to exercise their rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly. The use of the security forces to repress the population must therefore be halted, as well as the use of language that stigmatizes and seeks to criminalize people who are genuinely protesting in demand of the authorities’ accountability,” External link

Alejandro Giammatei said : “We’re dying of hunger and are just looking for a country that can offer us life with dignity". On Thursday, members of the latest caravan maneuvered past immigration officials to enter Guatemala before beginning the several-day trek toward the Mexican border. Ariel, a 26-year-old who asked to be identified only by his first name because he fears retribution from authorities back home, said he decided to join the caravan because he was kidnapped for ransom five months ago by police officers. He said he learned about the caravan forming on social media. As for its timing of the caravan, he said migrants left this week because until a few weeks ago, the country's borders were closed as a coronavirus precaution. Just days after Honduras confirmed its first cases of COVID-19 on March 10, President Juan Orlando Hernández ordered a near-complete lockdown of the country, closing its borders and issuing a that required people to stay in their homes except for a few hours each week. Those swift actions may have spared Honduras from a mass outbreak — the nation has seen just over 2,380 coronavirus deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. But human rights advocates say officials in Honduras have used the curfew to justify a military crackdown, and more than 63,000 people have been arrested for breaking curfew in recent months, including journalists and activists. Many businesses have closed, hunger is widespread, and evictions have spiked, forcing families into the streets. Hernández, who several years ago admitted that his campaign had been funded in part by millions of dollars stolen from the country’s Social Security Institute, and who was recently named by U.S. prosecutors as a co-conspirator in a drug trafficking case against his younger brother, has been linked to another corruption scandal. A recent government audit of the Honduran agency tasked with procuring medical supplies to fight the coronavirus found tens of millions of dollars wasted. "Where's the money?" read large banners that have sprung up across the country in recent months. Migrants have been leaving the country in large groups since at least 2017, inspired in part by annual "Stations of the Cross" processions in Mexico, where activists marched during Lent to bring attention to that country's harsh immigration enforcement. They say that there is safety in numbers and that traveling together means they don't have to pay smugglers for protection. The caravans didn't capture widespread U.S. attention until 2018, when Trump began frequently tweeting about them, saying they proved the U.S. needed to build a border wall. When a group of 7,000 mostly Central American migrants headed north shortly before the midterm elections, Trump seized on the issue and sent soldiers to the border. Many of the migrants in that caravan ended up stranded in Tijuana and other border cities after the Trump administration issued a rule requiring asylum seekers to wait in Mexico for their immigration court cases in the U.S. Some headed back to Honduras, while others built lives in Mexico. It is unclear whether the current caravan will make it into Mexico. Guatemala President Alejandro Giammattei said in a video address Thursday that migrants who are apprehended will be deported. "The order has been given to detain all those who entered illegally, and return them to the border of their country,” “We will not allow any foreigner who has used illegal methods to enter the country to think that they have the right to come and infect us and put us at serious risk” External link

Alejandro Giammatei said : “We’re dying of hunger and are just looking for a country that can offer us life with dignity". On Thursday, members of the latest caravan maneuvered past immigration officials to enter Guatemala before beginning the several-day trek toward the Mexican border. Ariel, a 26-year-old who asked to be identified only by his first name because he fears retribution from authorities back home, said he decided to join the caravan because he was kidnapped for ransom five months ago by police officers. He said he learned about the caravan forming on social media. As for its timing of the caravan, he said migrants left this week because until a few weeks ago, the country's borders were closed as a coronavirus precaution. Just days after Honduras confirmed its first cases of COVID-19 on March 10, President Juan Orlando Hernández ordered a near-complete lockdown of the country, closing its borders and issuing a that required people to stay in their homes except for a few hours each week. Those swift actions may have spared Honduras from a mass outbreak — the nation has seen 2,380 coronavirus deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. But human rights advocates say officials in Honduras have used the curfew to justify a military crackdown, and more than 63,000 people have been arrested for breaking curfew in recent months, including journalists and activists. Many businesses have closed, hunger is widespread, and evictions have spiked, forcing families into the streets. Hernández, who several years ago admitted that his campaign had been funded in part by millions of dollars stolen from the country’s Social Security Institute, and who was recently named by U.S. prosecutors as a co-conspirator in a drug trafficking case against his younger brother, has been linked to another corruption scandal. A recent government audit of the Honduran agency tasked with procuring medical supplies to fight the coronavirus found tens of millions of dollars wasted.

Erika Guevara Rosas concluded ( about Alejandro Giammatei ) : “President Alejandro Giammattei’s government must ensure that people are able to exercise their rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly. The use of the security forces to repress the population must therefore be halted, as well as the use of language that stigmatizes and seeks to criminalize people who are genuinely protesting in demand of the authorities’ accountability,” External link

Manfredo Marroquin explique ( about Alejandro Giammatei ) : "Les deux [candidats] représentent un système que les gens rejettent, qui n’a plus de légitimité. Deux dignes représentants d’un système expiré. Le nouveau président aura un chemin très difficile, car Giammattei n'a pas le pouvoir politique nécessaire pour changer l'humeur du peuple et, encore moins, pour garantir la gouvernance, alors que sa représentation au Congrès est minimale : 16 députés sur 160 sièges" External link
