Caravan of migrants crosses into Mexico

Caravan of migrants crosses into Mexico

Trump said Mexico should do more to stop the caravans that were coming from Central America and if that didn't happen, "I will call up the U.S. Military and close our southern border".

Pompeo told VOA Contributor Greta Van Susteren on Friday that Mexican officials want to create a situation where migrants "understand that it is not fruitful to transit though Mexico into the United States".

"One can not live back there", said Fidelina Vasquez, a grandmother travelling with her daughter and 2-year-old grandson, standing next to the main border gate.

Mexico says the migrants will be processed and that those without a legitimate case to travel onward or stay in Mexico will be returned to their countries of origin.

Mexican authorities also have said they're asking for help from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to process migrants seeking refugee status.

About 50 people had broken through the gate on Friday but police drove almost all of them back.

"The journey has been very tough, very hard but there's no work in Honduras", said 20-year-old Glenda Salvador, a mother of two toddlers and one of the multitude of Hondurans gathering in a Tecun Uman park close to the bridge crossing from Guatemala to Mexico.

The president's message was part of a broad strategy to crack down on illegal immigrants and tighten rules for legal migrants.

The group had burst through a Guatemalan border fence Friday and rushed onto the crossing over the Suchiate River, defying officials' entreaties for an orderly crossing and U.S. President Donald Trump's threats of retaliation. "The United States stands ready to assist the Government of Mexico and UNHCR in this effort".

"This migration has political motivations", said Morales, "which is violating the borders and the good faith of the states and of course putting at risk the most important thing, people".

Aerial images show dense crowds at the Guatemala-Mexico worldwide bridge in Tecun Uman, Guatemala.

Trump claims there are criminals among the migrants and is urging Mexico "in the strongest terms" to stop them.

People were seen passing their babies overhead through the crowd, while other women held their crying children to their chests as they pushed through the broken metal barriers and onto the border bridge connecting the two countries.

Trump during his speech to the crowd of supporters raised the question of how the caravan that began in Honduras was originally formed and how its organizers had received money for the journey.

"I didn't think it would be this easy", said Samuel Barela, 17, who crossed in a raft Friday night, about a week after leaving his hometown of Choluteca in southern Honduras.

The reported green light for women and children comes after many migrants were sent back on Saturday, with Guatemalan police transporting at least 62 people in two buses.

Earlier, Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met in Mexico City and discussed the caravan, which set off from Honduras last weekend. They left their homes without telling their families, without packing their bags, without informing their bosses that they wouldn't be returning to work.

Trump spent much of the past week complaining about the caravan.

Any who decide to cross illegally and are caught will be detained and deported, the Mexican government has said.

Will they reach the United States border? The Guatemalan Red Cross organized groups to treat foot injuries caused by the long march and volunteers have offered them water, food, and clothing.
