Migrants Travel to the USA – level 1

23-11-2018 15:00

In southern Mexico, thousands of migrants come together. Their countries have problems. They want to go the USA. They are going on a 2,500-kilometre trip. They are going north to the US border.

Hundreds of migrants ride on a cage truck. Cage trucks are normally for animals. Now they are also for people.

One family is from Honduras. The father goes with his pregnant wife. They also have a baby son. They want to have better lives. They say that Honduras is not going to get better.

Difficult words: migrant (a person who travels from one country to another to live there), border (the line between countries), cage truck (a very big truck that has a lot of cages and space for animals).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
