Around 150 people left the El Salvadorian capital of San Salvador on Sunday, forming a new migrant caravan directed towards the United States.
This is reportedly the fourth caravan to leave the Central American country.
«All of us migrants who are looking for the American dream, we go for a reason, to get ahead. Because in El Salvador there is a lot of poverty, a lot of crime. For those... Еще reasons we are looking for this way to earn a little more money to help our families,» migrant Luis Ceron said.
The first migrant caravan to reach the US-Mexico border arrived in Tijuana on Tuesday.
US military bolstered border security at its frontier with Mexico, installing barbed wire and dispatching helicopters to tour the area.
