Pompeo meets with Mexican government as its police attack Honduran migrants

Musielik File Mexico to Ask UN for Help with Central American Refugees

Thousands of migrants travelling in a mass caravan have burst through a Guatemalan border fence and streamed towards Mexican territory, defying Mexican authorities' entreaties for an orderly crossing and US President Donald Trump's threats of retaliation.

Honduran migrants leave Guatemala City at sunrise Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018 as they make continue their way north toward the U.S. numerous more than 2,000 Hondurans in a migrant caravan trying to wend its way to the United States left spontaneously with little more than the clothes on their backs and what they could quickly throw into backpacks.

The slow procession north has led President Donald Trump to threaten to cut aid to Central American nations and to send troops to the United States border if Mexico failed to stop the surge.

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

"One way or another, we will pass", the migrants chanted as they moved toward the bridge that connects the two countries as a disorganized crowd of women, men and children.

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

The Associated Press news agency says many migrants do not have passports and have been using national ID cards, which allow them to travel within Central America.

"They have the right to seek asylum at the border", Espinoza-Madrigal said.

Pompeo, who also met with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, said the situation is quickly reaching a point of crisis and the caravan must be stopped before it reaches the USA border.

Giron said they had come from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, and that gangs had killed her brother and threatened her.

"Well, we're looking at a lot of things", he said. And if we go back to Honduras we'll suffer until the day we die.

"In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have nearly no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!" the president noted in follow-up tweet, which was isolated and quoted by many news organizations as a blockbuster headline.

There are reports that some of the migrants broke through Guatemalan border fences before clashing with Mexican riot police in no man's land. Without offering any sort of evidence to support his claim, Trump also called numerous people criminals.

However, by the end of Thursday, the US president was also thanking Mexico for its efforts to contain the caravan.

Pompeo said he and Videgaray spoke of the importance of stopping the caravan before it reaches the USA border. They're also a cheaper alternative to the $7,000 to $10,000 that smugglers, charge for passage to the border, Leutert noted.

Since the mid-1970s, migrants from Central and Southern America have exploited Mexico's relatively lax policies on border security to enter the USA illegally. Mexico reportedly responded by sending police to its own southern border to stop the caravan from coming through after the threat was made.

The migrant caravan is now in Guatemala, in the border town Tecún Umán, though some in the group have already crossed into Mexico.

Many of those trying to get to the United States want to escape violence and poverty.

This caravan's formation comes just weeks before high-stakes midterm elections in the United States, in which many Republican candidates have been echoing the President's messaging about boosting border security and cracking down on illegal immigration.

Democratic consultant Scott Ferson told the Herald he takes Trump at his word.
