  • “This is Susana González. She was was part of the caravan from Honduras. She escaped Honduras because of starvation and lack of work. She is the first person of the caravan to be granted Asylum.”

 

( Squawker ) A Twitter user by the name of Samantha Jacquart shared the story of a woman who fled Honduras and entered our country illegally due to some pretty “rough” circumstances. The post reads:

“This is Susana González. She was was part of the caravan from Honduras. She escaped Honduras because of starvation and lack of work. She is the first person of the caravan to be granted Asylum.”

MEXICO TO WELCOME MIGRANTS WITH OPEN ARMS AND FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Posted on

  • Mexico: Immigrants who opt to return to Mexico will be welcomed with “open arms,” Sada said, offering them assistance with work, finances and education.
  •  Hondurans forced to return home could face violence from gangs and drug traffickers.
  • El Salvador: “We will be lobbying to have legislation as soon as possible that opens a way out, that opens a bridge for the beneficiaries of DACA,”

 

( Reuters ) The announcement to end DACA, created by former President Barack Obama in a 2012 executive order, came during the final day of talks in the Mexican capital to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement, adding pressure to already tense conversations between Mexico and the United States.

El Salvador’s foreign relations minister, Hugo Martinez, said on Tuesday that he would meet with members of the U.S. Congress in Washington to push for a solution within the next six months, before DACA’s provisions are set to end, aiming to protect the 30,000 to 60,000 Salvadorans who could be affected.

“It’s a worrisome situation. … We will be lobbying to have legislation as soon as possible that opens a way out, that opens a bridge for the beneficiaries of DACA,” Martinez said.

Guatemala’s foreign relations ministry said in a statement on Tuesday that its U.S. consulates would assist the thousands of Guatemalans protected under DACA, adding that that the ministry is counting on the “humanitarian sense” of U.S. lawmakers to ensure migrant youth are not forced to leave the country where many grew up.

The director of a Honduras migrant aid center, the Center for Attention for Honduran Migrants, called the U.S. decision “very sad,” and said young Hondurans forced to return home could face violence from gangs and drug traffickers.
