Where the first caravans were allowed to pass through Mexican territory and even given humanitarian aid or transportation by many communities and some officials, President Andrés Manuel López Obradors administration changed that beginning last year in response to steep trade tariffs threatened by Washington.
The result was on display Thursday on a rural highway in the far-southern Mexican city of Frontera Hidalgo, just across the river border between Mexico and Guatemala that the hundreds of migrants, mostly Hondurans, crossed before dawn.
The migrants walked for hours before stopping at the crossroads where Vázquezs stand lies, taking advantage of the copious shade on a road otherwise largely exposed to the beating tropical sun. They bought all the food the family and refreshments the family had and behaved respectfully, according to Karen Daniela Vázquez Robledo, his daughter.

No Obama era cages, detention camps in the US are emptying, the rule of law is returning.

President Trump is the rarest type of human being in The Swamp.
A man of his word.
The man is sunlight upon darkness.
This is the reason that the mullahs from iran are starting to say that they have "always" wanted negotiations with Trump.
Now they see, that he ain't obummer or shrub, and when he says something, they had better listen.
The very rare quality among men, to actually do what you said you would do...WOW.
Now that’s what I call a great quid pro quo. Keep the invaders away from our border or we’ll “tarrify” you!
So we're tarrorists now?
Trump can’t be president forever. When he no longer is and the Democrats get back into The White House they’ll throw open the borders and the hordes will coming charging in.
