In recent weeks, the migrant caravan that left Honduras in mid-October this year has caused a great stir in the news media around the world. Despite the fact that Central Americans have migrated to the United States before, strong reactions have come from the President of the United States, Donald Trump, who uses threats and intimidation tactics to stop the migrants. At the same time, the caravan continues to strive with the hope of a better life.
