Thousands of Migrants Charge Guatemala-Mexico Border En Route to U.S.

A US Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine agent pears out of the open door of a helicopter during a patrol flight near the Texas Mexico border

The rest want to reach the US like him. In 2009, the Obama administration and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton instigated a coup d'état against the country's elected president, Manuel Zelaya, initiating a reign of terror that continues to this day.

Manelich Castilla told Foro TV the migrants will enter in an orderly fashion. None were apparently detained despite the presence of hundreds of police lining the bridge.

CNN captured footage of migrants gathered on a bridge, as some jumped into the river below.

The women and children are part of a group of thousands of Honduran migrants on the Mexican border with Guatemala hoping to reach the United States.

Hundreds of Mexican Federal Police sealed the border as drones and helicopters hovered above the crowd. About 50 managed to push their way through before officers unleashed pepper spray and the rest retreated, joining the sea of humanity on the bridge.

The gates were closed again, and a federal police officer used a loudspeaker to address the masses, saying, "We need you to stop the aggression".

Caravan members poured through Guatemalan border posts in the town of Tecun Uman and onto a bridge leading to Mexico, only to be halted by dozens of Mexican police in riot gear.

"One way or another, the way Mexico treats the undocumented immigrants from Central America affects Mexico's position in how it can criticize the US government for its treatment of undocumented Mexican immigrants in the United States", Salazar told CNN en Español.

But there are still many unanswered questions about how this will actually play out once large numbers of migrants arrive.

After the caravan's leaders, Bartolo Fuentes, a former Congressman, and Juan Carlos Lopez, were arrested by the Guatemalan authorities and deported to Honduras, there has been a notable absence of leadership within the group.

"We are going to the United States!" he said. He should be happy because we're going to work.

However, she added: "I don't think anyone can afford to be overly confident because we don't know what the outcome will be". Polling booths have closed in the crucial by-election and candidates have begun the anxious wait for results.

Presidents Hernandez of Honduras and Jimmy Morales of Guatemala held an emergency meeting Saturday at a Guatemalan.

"Let's get these people out of there, there's something wrong, they're cuckoo", he said.

Hector Aguilar, a 49-year-old sales manager who worked as a taxi driver in Honduras' Yoro province to feed his four children, said he had to pay the two main gangs there protection money in order to work.

"There is nothing there", Orellana said. I said look we have lousy laws.

Pompeo met his Mexican counterpart, Luis Videgaray, and the caravan was the issue that preoccupied them.

Mexico's Videgaray said in an interview with the Televisa network that those who want to apply for refuge in Mexico are welcome to do so "if they have a vulnerable situation in their country of origin".

Mr Trump is returning to familiar territory by renewing his case for a wall on the southern U.S. border, a main theme of his 2016 presidential victory, even though...

While Trump has threatened to deploy the military to the Mexico-U.S. border, Lt. Col. Jamie Davis said Thursday in a statement that the "Department of Defense has not been tasked to provide additional support".

UNHCR spokesman Charlie Yaxley said the agency is reinforcing capacity in southern Mexico to offer counseling, legal assistance and humanitarian aid to asylum-seekers.

They plan to cross Mexico's border in the coming days, then continue north to the United States.

The migrant caravan left San Pedro de Sula, Honduras last Friday en route to the United States.
