Honduras recorded an unprecedented number of migrants transiting the country in July 2023: 46,779 people.
Through July 30, the month saw 52% more migration than second-place October 2022, and represented a 75% increase over June 2023.
Countries with over 1,000 migrants through July 30 were Venezuela (51% of the total), Cuba, Ecuador, Mauritania, Haiti, Senegal, and Egypt.
96 percent of registered migrants did so in the Nicaragua border-zone towns of Danlí and Trojes, in El Paraíso department. We visited that zone at the very end of April, and posted photos and a report, when the flow of migrants was less than half what it was at the end of July.
