FOX NEWS – The 4,000-person strong migrant caravan pushing north through Central America towards the United States reportedly stalled Friday morning at Guatemala’s border with Mexico, where members debated the next step – including the possibility of an impending mass crossing attempt.
The caravan, which initially took shape as a means to escape the pervasive poverty and violence in Honduras, arrived at the Guatemalan border town of Tecun Uman on Thursday night.

It is being reported that the caravan has discussed if that they come across any opposition that they will use their sheer numbers to force themselves through.
Mexico requested that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) establish shelters along its southern border with Central America.
“Just today, the Mexican government, and this is a very important step, requested the intervention of the U.N., the Office of the High Commissioner on Refugees, to help Mexico review any asylum claims from the members of the caravan. That will allow us to have a process by which in our border we will make sure that of serving human rights, respecting international law, if there are legitimate claims to refugee, those can be processed in a very clear way.”
At the established shelters, U.N. officials will vet the refugees to decide which ones have legitimate claims for refugee status, the official told Fox News.
Essentially what this does is give Mexico a “pass” so they do not have to step in and stop the caravan.
