More than 4,000 migrants forced their way into Mexico after storming a border fence with Guatemala.
Migrantes rompen cerca en la frontera y entran corriendo a México

“We’re calling up the military, not the guard, we’re calling up the military and we’re going to have the military stationed,” Trump said. “They’re not coming into this country. They might as well turn back.”
So far the U.S. military has not been advised to deploy to the border:
Lieutenant Colonel Jamie Davis said Thursday in a statement the “Department of Defense has not been tasked to provide additional support.”
At the Guatemala-Mexico border on Friday police initially stopped a group of about 1,000 migrants and refugees, using tear gas to turn back the crowd. People then began climbing fences and pushing through. Some within the group were later able to advance, with women and children heading through the gates first. Other groups are heading north behind them.
As the migrants formed into lines, Mexican authorities allowed a trickle of them, starting with women and children, to pass through gates and board buses for refugee camps.
….The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!

It is highly interesting that right before the November elections that a group of 4,000+ illegal aliens organised, have the money and provisions as well as have walked over 1,000 miles and busted through the Mexico border. The air travel (bird fly) shortest distance between Honduras and Mexico is 1,949 km= 1,211 miles.

Translated: Members of the Caravan of Hondurans throw themselves into the Suchiate river to try to follow their path. In the background Guatemala.
This situation is still ongoing and we will continue to track the truth and report it as it develops.
