An official from the Biden transition team has responded to the migrant caravan heading to the U.S. that asked the incoming administration to prove that it plans to keep its promise to ease President Trump’s restrictions on immigration.
The migrant caravan: More than 7,000 migrants reportedly left Honduras last week, some of whom moved into Guatemala on Friday. Migrant rights group Pueblo Sin Fronteras said, on behalf of the caravan, that it expects the Biden administration to welcome the group because the former vice president promised softer immigration policies during his run.
“We recognize the importance of the incoming Government of the United States having shown a strong commitment to migrants and asylum seekers, which presents an opportunity for the governments of Mexico and Central America to develop policies and a migration management that respect and promote the human rights of the population in mobility,” the group said in a statement. “We will advocate that the Biden government honors its commitments.”
