TECUN UMAN, Guatemala (Reuters) - Hundreds of Central American migrants bedded down overnight on a bridge separating Guatemala and Mexico, many squeezed against a metal border gate, as efforts to halt a trek north by a caravan of thousands of people gathered pace under U.S. pressure.
U.S. President Donald Trump has warned the Central American caravan must be stopped before it reaches the United States, and Honduras and Guatemala said late on Friday they were mobilizing to return Honduran migrants to their homeland.
Earlier in the day, hundreds of migrants at the head of the caravan had poured through Guatemalan border posts and onto the bridge, but were repelled by dozens of shield-bearing Mexican police. Several complained they had been teargassed.
Drained from days of walking and frustrated, many prepared to spend the night in the open. Some stretched towels and garbage bags along the bridge walls, others lay down on backpacks, while a man applied lotion to his tired feet.
Mexicos government, which says it will process migrants claims for asylum individually, vowed to tackle the caravan as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met top officials in Mexico City. Pompeo urged Mexico to ensure the procession did not reach the United States.

Send in the Navy SEALs , blow the bridges
Send these vermin home to their own countries. They care little for their own.
Would be great to do...BUT..in 2008 DiFi sponsored a law passed by Congress that non-Mexican Central Americans cannot be sent home and must be given asylum in the US if they cross our border. So unless theyre stopped in Mexico they will be ours to take care of.
We have an agreement with Mexico that Mexican citizen are immediately returned to Mexico. Check the numbers and youll see that most of the invaders this past decade are from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala
We are screwed
God loves them they are not vermin,
Every time theres a (migrant) caravan there are police sent to the southern border ... but weve never seen anything as dramatic as were seeing today, said Eunice Rendon, coordinator of migrant advocacy group Agenda Migrante.
This has everything to do with Trump, she added.
It’s wonderfully ironic that Mexico is caught in the middle this time. Maybe the need to BUILD THAT WALL!
A bridge... we probably paid for.
No, they’re useless eaters that America doesn’t need. They f***ed up their country of origin and are coming here like locusts to do the same.
The photographer cares enough to find the area with the most children. #FakeNews continues to try to craft a narrative, even as most Americans see that President Trump is succeeding (for now) in keeping them away using just rhetoric. We all know if these paid criminals get to our border, some black-robed tyrant will issue a judicial ruling in favor of the illegal invasion, even though that ruling will have no basis in law.
Cant think of a reason why. Can you?
At the White House, then-President Obama met with (L-R) El Salvador's Pres Salvador Sanchez Ceren,
Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina and Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez.
One of these poor “refugees” had the foresight to bring lotion to use on his tired feet.
How resourceful. They should use their talents to make their country better. Perhaps fashion it after the way that terrible President Trump made the USA.
The President should take the “credit” for inspiring them.
.God loves them they are not vermin
That may be true, but too much of a good thing can do you in, especially if consumed too quickly and on top of it many of these migrants have no intention of being integrated and assimilated and once here want to continue along the same lines they just ran away from.
I am all for helping people where ever they may be, but on location. Apparently they must like the American idea and ideals otherwise they would not be clamoring to come here. So let’s teach them what made America great and it certainly wasn’t socialism. If they and their governments want to learn and absorb it, fine and continue to help them, but again on location. On the other hand if not,then just let them stew in their own creation, just like Venezuela or any other corrupt socialistic country of their making.
But for heaven sake get rid of that crazy idea that we have to take and absorb everyone just because their countries have turned into crap by people very similar in nature as what we have here. Too many Hillary’s, Pelosi’s and Feinstein’s are on the lose worldwide and when everything eventually turns to you know what, then they come knocking on our door, begging to let them in and before you know it we have the same crap they ran away from, but this time in our own home.
Where is Godzilla when you REALLY need him?
Shoot them before they can touch the border.
Feinstein should be hanged - slowly.
Crooked evil witch.
The bigger picture is soros and his globalist friends including many of our enemy countries are supporting and funding this as well as the massive amounts of killer drugs smuggled in that are killing our children. This is an effort to collapse this nation and bring it to her knees. Alex Jones may be nuts but he has been on this for many years
they are preparing for war against us, with Russia, China, and Iran..here we go..Come Lord
