On 12 October 2018, migrants from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador gathered at San Pedro Sula, the second largest city in Honduras and one of the most violent in the world. The caravan began the next day, intending to reach the United States to flee from violence, poverty, and political repression. The caravan began with about 160 migrants but quickly gathered over 500 participants as it marched through Honduras. Bartolo Fuentes, a former Honduran congressman and one of the march coordinators, stated that the goal of the caravan was to find safety in numbers as it traveled north. The same day it left, American Vice President Mike Pence urged the presidents of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala to persuade their citizens to stay home. Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández advised his citizens to return home and to "not let yourselves be used for political purposes". Pueblo Sin Fronteras did not organize the October caravan, but expressed its solidarity with it. Irineo Mujico, the director of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, himself did not recommend another caravan to the United States, instead advising its members to seek asylum in Mexico.

On January 13, 1988, Michelangelo returned to San Pedro Sula South of the country.
At approximately 6:30 PM passes to leave his home in Colonia Villa Florencia. While chatting inside the vehicle, the engine is running and lit lanterns. Suddenly a motorcycle in which two men are driving, stop at the corner of First Street and First Avenue that Cologne. One of them is headed for the car brand Peugeot beige, reaches the left front window of the car and shoots Michelangelo at a very short distance. One shot through the neck by Michelangelo and enters the chest of Moses bullet that kills. Michelangelo give two shots to the head, according to the forensic report.
Months before his death, as foreseeing his death, makes known his family that if anything happened, the culprits would be the militarized police in the country, which had advice from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and repressive governments in America south, while giving them some instructions how to proceed to protect themselves. The same vehicle was parked in the morning at the house of the parents of Michelangelo, it is seen near the place where his remains watch. That same day in front of the church when they go see some family that stands out the car window the point of a gun.
Members of a notorious Honduran military unit responsible for dozens of death-squad killings in past years continue to commit sporadic acts of violence even though top commanders have said the unit has been disbanded, according to a Honduran police officer who deserted and fled to the United States.
Sgt. Fausto Reyes Caballero, a 19-year veteran of Honduras' security forces, said that a two-man sniper team from the unit, known as Battalion 316, gunned down a human rights activist, Miguel Angel Pavon, in January of this year in the northwestern city of San Pedro Sula. In July, Reyes said, the unit was secretly holding prisoner a student activist named Roger Gonzalez who disappeared in Honduras in April.
Pueblo Sin Fronteras was formed in the early 2000s. The group builds shelters for immigrants on the trek north to the Mexican-American border and provides legal council to immigrants and illegal aliens. Activists affiliated with the group are present in the United States, where the organization actively raises funds and organizes protest actions against American immigration policy.
In the months before Rudy Lozano was killed in 1983, the Chicago activist and others were fighting to legalize undocumented immigrants, forge links with African-Americans and strengthen labor rights for Latinos.
Community leaders were gathering over the weekend to mark the 20th anniversary of the death of Lozano, part of the first generation of young Hispanic activists that tapped into Chicago's changing demographics.
Emma Lozano formed a group in 1987 called Pueblo Sin Fronteras (Spanish for Community Without Borders), named for a slogan Lozano often employed. She says the organization has gained a reputation for their militant activism, particularly on behalf of undocumented workers and other immigrants.
Emma Lozano got her start in organizing in the 1970s with Chicago's independent Latino political movement. She founded Centro Sin Fronteras in 1987 to defend the rights of undocumented Mexican immigrants. At the same time, Pueblo Sin Fronteras began organizing neighborhood residents, using hunger strikes and demonstrations to win construction of the city's first community-based bilingual school. Ever since, Sin Fronteras has played a leading role on issues ranging from school reform to legalization of the undocumented to getting the U.S. Navy out of the Vieques, Puerto Rico.
Emma Lozano, a spokeswoman for Familia Latina Unida, an advocacy group co-founded by Elvira Arellano, urged Obama to use his executive powers on deportations, as he did with the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals memorandum.
Last year’s so-called DACA memorandum protected some undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. as children from deportation.
“Obama should use his executive powers like he used for DACA and all those eligible under the Senate bill. He should stop those deportations immediately,” Lozano said. “We need a solution now.”
The Rev. Emma Lozano, who founded Centro Sin Fronteras in Chicago and has a long history with Mr. Obama on immigration, said they are giving the president until Thanksgiving to take unilateral action halting deportations, and then they will rally.
“We will march and run our own Latino independent candidate for president of the United States,” she said in an email announcing her plans to her network of supporters.

Will be interesting to see when they actually make it to the border, I would also pay attention to exactly where they cross because the above calculations are based upon the closest point of entry from where they originated.

The "U"SA causes refugee crises worldwide, which hit everbody but not the "U"SA.
Europe had to take millions of refugees, because of "U"S regime changes, "U"S global dominance dreams, "U"S military interventions(hidden and open ones), "U"S made destabilisations like in the middle east.
And now the megalomaniac wannabe world police is crying and wants to use it´s military(only thing the "U"SA is able too), because of not even 10.000 refugees??? What a poor and cheap nation, which can´t handle even a few thousand refugees(who keeps middle- and southamerica down and forces the people to flee???), while forcing Europe and others to handle millions of them. The "U"SA is the biggest "George Soros" on earth!
Europe should send every single refugee, that came here because of the "U"SA´s behaviour in the world, to the americas, so they could join the mini refugee trek that scares that "superdupernation" now. Would be just fair!
Emma Lozano, executive director of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, a local immigrant rights group, said she was glad the judges gave extensions to the workers regarding deportation.
“We won't give up until we have equal rights and live a life with dignity. Legalization is not enough - we want to make a new America, one that accepts and treats all of the inhabitants of our continent as equal citizens. We ride for freedom from our oppressors and we don't say, ‘please, accept us, we are good workers,’ and make contributions, and wave the U.S. flag. We know our history - 1/2 of the entire United States was originally Mexico. We have every right to be here.” - Emma Lozano, Director, Sin Fronteras Law Program
At one point, four couples traveling with the caravan paused in Tijuana for a brief marriage ceremony officiated by Emma Lozano, of Chicago’s Lincoln United Methodist Church, NBC San Diego reported.
