Fact-finding Mission by Activists, U.S. Officials Examines Current Causes of Forced Migration from Central America
Chicago, October 24, 2022 — After an August 2022 fact-finding mission to Guatemala and Honduras, led by Lawyers for Civil Rights (LCR), Centro Presente, GreenRoots, and Alianza Americas, a new report (titled Fleeing, not Migrating: Crisis in Central America) sheds light on the fundamental causes of migration from Central America. The report explores the political, economic, and social conditions of both countries through an intersectional approach, emphasizing major current causes of migration: climate change and the erosion of the rule of law and democracy throughout Central America.
