"'We are hungry!" Migrants wail at Mexico-Guatemala border

Mexico sends federal forces to its southern border as migrant caravan heads north

And requests for asylum will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, a process that can take up to four months.

But at the bridge migrants, who have formed orderly lines, are refusing to board the buses fearing that they will simply be deported.

On Thursday, hundreds had walked to the river's edge where they sang the national anthems of Honduras and Guatemala.

They had been preparing for an influx of migrants, with local police chief Gerardo Hernandez saying that five shelters had been set up to accommodate up to 4,000 people.

Earlier in the week, the United States president had threatened to cut aid to Honduras and send USA troops to the Mexican border. It was already hard enough to support his four daughters on the $450 he makes, so he closed his small business instead.

Anyone with appropriate travel documents and visas will be let into Mexico, while others will be allowed to apply for refugee status.

The nonprofit also noted that Prensa Libra, a Guatemalan newspaper, "published an in-depth piece on the inner workings of an global human smuggling network that moves migrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh to the U.S".

"Honestly, I want to get to the states to contribute to that country, to do any kind of work, picking up garbage", he said. They have also sent two Boeing 727s full of police reinforcement and riot gear.

Mexico's government vowed on Friday to meet the challenge of a caravan of Central American migrants heading north, after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to shut down the U.S-Mexico border to halt its passage.

About 50 migrants managed to push their way through. About 50 managed to push their way through before officers unleashed pepper spray and the rest retreated. Some in the caravan threw rocks.

Multiple migrants, federal police and journalists were wounded.

Earlier Friday, a New York Times reporter challenged Trump's assertion that migrants in the caravan were criminals.

After arriving at the tall, yellow metal fence Friday, some clambered atop it and on USA -donated military jeeps. They included 52 children, nine of them 5 years old or younger.

CNN's Bill Weir was on a bridge that links Mexico and Guatemala Friday, as the caravan of migrants pushed through the border.

"We're looking for concrete results", the State Department said before Pompeo's trip, "and for solutions that work for both countries".

Dozens of Mexican federal police officers were on the bridge, with hundreds of others behind.

It's important to remember that for Mexico, migration isn't just about people coming into the country, Salazar says.

"Speaking in Scottsdale, Arizona, yesterday Mr Trump said he" appreciated very much" Mexico's efforts to stop the caravan.

It said the smugglers never crossed the border while they helped migrants over the wall in four places. Some of them talked among themselves.

The 1878 Posse Comitatus Act bars Trump from using the military as a police force, and while Trump could ask Congress for a waiver, that is unlikely because Senate Democrats, who oppose his border security agenda, can block passage of most legislation.

The United States provides millions of dollars in aid to countries like El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, Trump noted.

Orellana says "the economy in Honduras is awful, there is nothing there".

He also threatened to send in the United States military to "CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!" and keep out "MANY CRIMINALS" among the migrants.

As the mass of humanity strung out from Guatemala City to the border, it was unclear whether those who made it the farthest would wait for their countrymen to arrive before attempting a mass crossing into Mexico.

A handful of migrants jumped into the Suchiate River below to swim for rafts.

In the caravan, Central American migrants hiked from Honduras through muddy jungle and residential streets, some toting babies along with backpacks, Reuters images show.

"That's a big step", he said at the time.
