Guatemala Declares Emergency As New Migrant Caravan Bound To US May Be Forming 

Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei declared emergency measures Monday along the Guatemala–Honduras border as new reports suggest a new migrant caravan may be forming in Honduras, according to Associated Press News.

The emergency order declares mass gatherings and demonstrations illegal for the next 2-5 weeks in five Guatemalan provinces that border Honduras.

In a statement, the Guatemalan government defended the new public health order by saying, "groups of people could put at risk the life, liberty, security, health, access to justice, peace and development" of Guatemalans. A similar order was announced in January to squash previous migrant caravans.
