    If Donald Trump’s day isn’t bad enough already, footage has emerged showing large numbers of #migrants entering #Guatemala from #Honduras, seemingly with the US as their intended destination. Associated Press reports that roughly 2,000 Hondurans attempted to cross the newly reopened border – which had been closed due to the pandemic – by foot on Thursday morning. The plan had been to register anyone entering Guatemala and offer help to those willing to turn back. However, authorities said that around 2,000 people crossed the border at Corinto without registering, despite a police and military presence. AP journalists reported seeing others entering the country away from the official crossing point. There were no reports of violence and the Guatemalan military said it would set up interior checkpoints to check migrants’ documents and monitor their progress. President Trump has regularly demonized migrants taking this route, calling them an ‘invasion’ and threatening to stop aid to countries that let them pass through.
