Desperate for hope

  Biden's officials, fearing a surge in immigration, has sent out the message that little will change quickly for migrants arriving at the southern US border, even if there is a softer reception for them.

The World Food Programme says three million Hondurans face food insecurity, six times higher than before the hurricanes. The dual hurricanes Iota and Eta affected an estimated four million of 10 million Honduran people. 

Dana Graber Ladek, head of the International Organization for Migration office in Mexico, explained, “They’re suffering poverty, violence, the hurricanes, unemployment, domestic violence, and with that dream of a new administration, of new opportunities, they’re going to try [to migrate] again and again.”
