On October 22, over 7,000 people had joined the “Migrant Caravan” because of all of all the poverty and violence in Honduras. Honduras is also one of the poorest nations in the world! 6 out of 10 homes are subject to extreme poverty. Trump had complained that the governments of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador weren’t doing their job by keeping them in their country and not leaving to the U.S.

Shakira- “I feel like they should give them a chance, I mean this land was made by immigrants. The people coming to the U.S. are coming from dangerous and poor places trying to look for a better life, so that’s why they come to the United States. That’s exactly what immigrants from the 1890’s did. They came to the United states to escape the poverty and the violence.”(11)


Briana Reyes- “Honestly people coming to the U.S. is great. The U.S. is about new beginnings and new chances and everyone deserves that. We’re more privileged than other countries and everyone deserves to get all of those privileges.”(12)

















Miguel Santos- ” I think that there should be no problem trying too come to the U.S. I think that people come from their places to the U.S. because maybe they don’t like where they live or maybe they cant afford where they live, or something else. But we, (the U.S.), can’t be saying “no” to those people. If they want to come to the U.S. then we have to respect their decisions, because they are not OUR decisions. I feel like we have to be friendly and kind to all.”(12)

Andre Maldonado- ” What I think about the caravan is that it is unbelievable how many people have joined along the way since the beginning to now. In my opinion, I don’t see anything bad with whats going on. All the people that are coming together are coming to give themselves and their families a better life. They are coming for better economic opportunities”(11).


Manuel Valdovinos- “I honestly don’t see anything wrong with the caravan. People are coming to the United States to better theirs and their families lives. We shouldn’t feel surprised because this is supposed to be the land of opportunity. That’s why people are coming. We have so many rights that everyone around the world should have. I don’t think they’re doing anything wrong. Plus many people already here went through struggles like this”(9).
