Honduran migrants walking and aboard trucks head in a caravan to the USA, in Huixtla on their way to Mapastepec Chiapas state, Mexico, on October 24, 2018.

On Twitter, U.S. President Donald Trump said Monday he would "begin cutting off, or substantially reducing" the "massive" foreign aid that Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador receive from the U.S.as they "were not able to do the job" - a claim he had already made days prior and to which migrants in Tapachula only reacted to with disdain. They can not engage the migrants or take on a law enforcement function. The official was not authorized to speak publicly because the details had not yet been finalized and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Four days after crossing into Mexico, the caravan is more than 1,860 miles (3,000 km) from the USA border.

"Meanwhile, there are 3,000 children, women and men in the Ciudad Hidalgo International bridge, shared by Mexico and Guatemala, who are looking to enter Mexico with documents provided by the INM", the news outlet said.

Mexican authorities say they have received 1,699 refugee status requests from adults and children so far.

Tensions boiled over last week, when Nielsen suggested going to the United Nations Committee on Human Rights in a meeting with White House chief of staff John Kelly.

Guatemalan officials say they detained several Syrian citizens with false documents two years ago and deported them. "That means from the Middle East region". "However, we are furious at the failure of Congressional Democrats to help us address this growing crisis".

An accident involving an escalator in the Rome metropolitan system has injured about 20 people, mostly Russian soccer fans. People on the parallel escalator can be seen trying to grab those on the broken machine and pull them to safety.

But Central America's dire straits can not be used as an excuse to bust through borders on a mass scale.

"There will be people who stay in Mexico, there will be people who go to different borders because everyone has their own plan and different support where they have family members".

Members of the caravan have vowed to press on, despite Trump's threat to close the border to them.

More families are illegally crossing together, the border patrol reported.

While such caravans have occurred semiregularly over the years, this one has become a hot topic ahead of the November 6 midterm elections.

The main throng appeared organized, with people in identical green reflective vests leading and corralling the group as it walked or was transported by truck along the way.

If they arrive, they are likely to face long lines at ports of entry.

Honduran migrants, taking part in a caravan heading to the USA, rest during a stop in Mapastepec, Chiapas state, Mexico, on October 24, 2018.

In a tweet Thursday morning, President Donald Trump declared he would be "bringing out the military".

He later acknowledged that his claim was only a hunch. "But they could very well be".

Mapastepec is still over 1,000 miles from the USA, a journey of several weeks for the remaining members.

Under current immigration law, for example, all individuals are entitled to certain rights and legal protections while in the custody of the USA government, including illegal aliens. Fuentes was detained in Guatemala and returned back to Honduras.

"Blame the Democrats", he wrote.
