Buses arrive in Tegucigalpa with immigrants of different nationalities heading to the United States and taking buses to Guatemala. Footage taken on Friday shows migrants gathering at a checkpoint on the road to the city of Tegucigalpa.

“Many of them are from Venezuela, the majority 70% from Venezuela and 10% from Cuba. On a normal day about 1,500 to 1,700 people pass through here, coming only from the region of Trojes,” said Miguel Zepeda, a humanitarian aid worker in Adra.

Douglas Escoba, a migrant said: “In every country, they abuse the migrant because they take advantage of the situation, in the charge, they go too far and treat you badly if you don’t want to pay,”

Migrants from Cuba, Venezuela, Haiti and various countries of Latin America migrate to the United States in search of better living conditions, entering Honduras through illegal roads at the border with Nicaragua, often through the area of Trojes, where they travel in vehicles to the border of Guatemala.
