Another migrant caravan gathering at Guatemala border

ㅤ"Hundreds of Honduran migrants hoping to seek asylum in the U.S. are gathering at the Guatemala-Mexico border to embark on a second migrant caravan.
ㅤBetween 1,500 and 4,000 people will reportedly gather in the town plaza of Tecun Uman, Guatemala, to launch a similar caravan like the one that passed through the town just days prior, USA Today reported Friday.
ㅤThe bridge connecting Tecun Uman to Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico, is closed but the newspaper reported that the migrants are planning to cross the Suchiate River in two groups. They will either take rafts, which charge 20 quetzals, or $2.50, per person, or wade through the waist-deep water."
