( – On Monday, Guatemalan officials reported that a caravan with more than 500 migrants had dissolved before reaching the U.S. border. The caravan had originated in Honduras but shortly after crossing into Guatemala had ended up dissolving according to the Guatemalan Migration Institute.

Authorities in the country reported that the caravan stopped only a few miles into the country and that all those who did not have the necessary documentation to Honduras had been sent back. However, those who did have the necessary documents were allowed to continue. Still, Guatemala did not provide any further details on how many migrants were allowed to continue because they had the right documentation.

In recent months there have been a number of such caravans that had illegally crossed into the United States.

This latest failed Honduran caravan comes around a month after a previous caravan of approximately 8,000 people had traveled through Mexico and reached the United States in late December.

The Biden administration has repeatedly tried to downplay the record-high levels of illegal immigration which could be seen in the late months of 2023. In December there were as many as 10,000 migrants who were arrested each day at the southwest border. However, the White House has tried to pass it off as a seasonal increase.

In November the total number of migrant encounters at the southern border was 242,418, which is the highest November ever on record, and the third-highest month of all time.

However, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre argued that this number was not unusual.
