Migrant caravan vows to continue march toward USA border

Honduran police officers stand as an Honduran migrant looks on while hoping to cross into Guatemala and join a caravan trying to reach the US

He called on Mexico to ensure the migrants do not reach the U.S. border while threatening Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador with financial penalties.

A caravan of migrants, whose numbers have been estimated to range between 3,000 to 4,000 strong, began converging on the Guatemala-Mexico border early Thursday evening. Mexican police in riot gear pushed them back, setting off smoke canisters.

Jonathan Guzman, who joined the mass procession caravan en route, said he dreams of finding a construction job in Los Angeles.

After security forces violently prevented hundreds of immigrants from the Honduran caravan to enter the country, President Donald Trump praised Mexico's actions and said its southern neighbor had acted in such a way because they "respect USA leadership". But as of this moment, I thank Mexico. "So we appreciate very much what Mexico is doing", he told reporters in Scottsdale.

"So as of this moment, I thank Mexico".

If their asylum claim is denied, Mexico says they will be deported.

Thousands of Central American migrants stormed the northern Guatemalan border on Friday, successfully forcing their way into Mexican territory as part of a larger effort to reach the United States.

Migrants gathered outside the Mexican immigration headquarters shouted "Ayuda!".

One of the women fainted, alarming her relatives.

The migrants seemed confused over their next moves while it was equally unclear how Mexican authorities would react to so many unauthorized arrivals. It appears they were to be processed for refugee status or other potential protections.

"They're not coming into this country", Trump said at the rally. Those seeking asylum would be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Honduran migrants rest behind a border fence near the Suchiate River at Ciudad Hidalgo on Saturday. But residents of the town lined up to watch the spectacle.

Numerous migrants, the overwhelming majority fleeing violence and poverty in Honduras, slept on the bridge through heavy rain overnight, dozens of them crammed against a metal border gate guarded by Mexican police.

"You have to understand", he said.

"We haven't eaten, the soldiers just sent us some water", Marina Alvarado, 48, said.

It was the kind of chaotic scene that Mexican authorities had hoped to avoid.

TMZ first reported that the 25-year-old pop star and the 24-year-old Saturday Night Live star called it quits over the weekend. The two were spotted leaving 30 Rock at around noon on October 14, just hours before the news of their breakup went public.

She added in a subsequent tweet that she has been in "constant contact" with her foreign counterparts in Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras, and that her department was monitoring the situation and ready to provide assistance if necessary.

"Violent entry into the country not only threatens our sovereignty, but also puts the migrants themselves at risk", Pena Nieto said in a video published on his social media profiles.

But what will Mexico do about the ones who have crossed over, reformed the caravan and are now heading north again?

He left Honduras, he said, because he had no choice.

He said that he makes 150 lempiras a day, or about $6, and has no work benefits. "How can I make a life?"

Since his campaign days, Mr Trump has lambasted illegal immigrants, and this latest caravan comes after a major immigration crackdown.

The people in the Central American caravan making their way to the United States border with Mexico are facing real life-and-death issues that need to be addressed.

For Mexico, the caravan had posed a major dilemma, pitting compassion for the migrants and respect for human rights against the country's relationship with the United States.

"Mexico maintains its willingness to support migrants who decide to enter our country while respecting our laws", he said.

President Donald Trump launched a Twitter attack Sunday against a growing Central American migrant caravan hoping to enter the USA, stating he plans to block it.

"That's evidence of what this really is", Pompeo said.

A growing crowd of Central American migrants is resuming its advance toward the US border in southern Mexico on Sunday.

Mexico has always been the major route for Central Americans seeking to make it to the United States.

"Full efforts are being made to stop the onslaught of illegal aliens from crossing our Souther (sic) Border".

"It used to be that Central Americans would cross with people from their same community".

There were about 10 buses awaiting migrants along the highway between Tapachula and Ciudad Hidalgo and the drivers had been instructed to carry the migrants to shelters in Tapachula, the officers said.
