"'Unknown MIddle Easterners'? So, nondescript people from somewhere in the Middle East traveled and assimilitated into group of poor, hungry, huddled masses of refugees in Guatemala to make a 3000 mile journey only to end up in immigration camps in the the U.S.?", wrote Thom W. Hundreds became stranded on a border bridge between Guatemala and Mexico as fences blocked their entry into Mexico, with some spending the night on the open-air bridge.
Mexican authorities have called on them to formally register their presence in the country so that they can be processed for asylum.
The caravan of people are travelling through Central America and come from different countries such as Honduras and Guatemala. But "they are going to continue walking, and their feet won't heal as long as they keep walking", he said.
The migrants say that they are trying to escape violence and poverty. And said on Sunday that the United States, Mexico, and Canada should invest in Central America and southern Mexico.
"Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S", he said.
Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador supported the caravan and promised to provide people with work permits in a speech to supporters in Tuxtla-Gutierrez, about 180 miles (290 km) north of Tapachula. Of course, he's not really interested in solving any of the problems related to why these people feel the need to leave or what a just American immigration policy would look like - he just wants to fearmonger.
Why is President Trump reacting so strongly? Immigration was a key issue in the 2016 presidential race.
On Saturday Mexican authorities attempted to resolve the challenge posed by the caravan waiting to enter Mexico's southern border by legal means. Both chambers, however, are slated to be in recess until the week after the November 6 elections.
They're not coming into this country.
Most are heading for the United States' southern border.
"People have to apply for asylum in Mexico first, and if they fail to do that, the United States will turn them away".
This comes after the presidents of Honduras and Guatemala met over the weekend.
However, the group has not been stopped.
"If you send us back, we will return!" a large crowd shouted in unison. Trump previously deployed the National Guard to the border in April, as a smaller caravan headed to the United States, but said over the weekend that he would deploy "the military, not the guard".
What did American kids think about the issue of immigration in the USA election in 2016? We know for a fact based on intelligence reports these cartels smuggling organizations will push a large group of family units in one area to tie the border assets up. The caravan is still moving.
A Honduran-born leader of the migrant caravan rejected Trump's assertion that there were people from the Middle East in the group.
