According to the Hondudiario.com news portal, migrants started arriving at the city's central bus station on Monday and set off toward the United States later that day, while previous media reports claimed that the caravan was not expected to start moving until Tuesday.
It is yet unknown how many people are marching with the new caravan, but some media reports show that a number of migrants exceeds 500.
Couple hundred people who arrived after the big group left are at the bus station. The ones who left got on buses or are still walking and trying to catch a ride towards towns closer to border. pic.twitter.com/5MXJ858Axz— Sarah Kinosian (@skinosian) January 15, 2019
In response to the migration crisis, over 5,200 US soldiers have been deployed to the country's southern border, as President Donald Trump has repeatedly stressed that he had no intention of allowing undocumented migrants enter the United States and seek asylum.
