The second caravan making their way up through Central America have members armed with explosives gasoline bombs made of soft-drink bottles improvised PVC tubes to launch fireworks Mexican federal police briefly blocked the migrants from crossing the Suchiate River on Monday But the migrants soon defied the law enforcement presence and broke through into Mexico
The second migrant caravan, believed to be armed with bombs and guns, crossed into Mexico on Monday despite a huge police presence.
Hundreds of migrants following in the footsteps of the first caravan heading to the U.S. border crossed a river from Guatemala.
A low-flying police helicopter hovered overhead as the migrants waded in large groups through the Suchiate River's murky waters, apparently trying to use the downdraft from its rotors to discourage them.
Guatemala's Noti7 channel reported that one man drowned and aired video of a man dragging a seemingly lifeless body from the river.
Once on the Mexican side the migrants were surrounded and escorted by black-uniformed officers as sirens wailed.
The second group back at the Guatemalan frontier has been more unruly than the first that crossed. Guatemala's Interior Ministry said Guatemalan police officers were injured when the migrant group broke through border barriers on Guatemala's side of the bridge.
Mexico authorities said migrants attacked its agents with rocks, glass bottles and fireworks when they broke through a gate on the Mexican end but were pushed back, and some allegedly carried guns and firebombs.
On Monday, Mexican Interior Secretary Alfonso Navarrete Prida lamented what he called a second 'violent attempt' to storm the border, accusing people of placing the elderly, pregnant women and children at the front, putting them at risk of being crushed.
'Fortunately, that did not happen,' he said.

The Mexican Marines can take these idiots out!..................
It’ll be tricky to blame Trump for BOTH “caravans”.
Perhaps the new one is to HERD the first into America?
Mexico is going to have a lot of problems with this crap. It is unavoidable pain and cost.
The 1st Mob is traveling at the rate of 22 miles an hour. At that rate the supplies will become harder to come by and colder weather will stop this nonsense about the middle of Mexico.
If the idea was to storm the borders before the elections it is another horrible Left wing failure. A nightmare in fact, which does the opposite of what they want.
It won’t make the border for at least a month though I don’t think it will make it at all.
First group plays the sympathy card. As in group plays the revolution card.
Okay, it’s an invasion by an invading force threatening our safety. Will the feds have the balls to treat it as such?

It’s O.K. They’s jus’ new American Democrats!
Ah, so the Orks have reinforcements of Uruk-Hai
The battle for Helm’s Deep is upon us
So the Mexican police don’t have any guns. They can’t shoot back.
Act of war.
Find out the country of origin for all of them. Cut funding and subsidies off to those countries, and expel their diplomats here.
I hope you mean 22 miles per day?
Any well-armed and trained military force could do it. Mexico is just putting on a show of stopping them. They’ll be threatening the US military and National Guard and holding up children as shields. I can picture it. As in Ghaza, a few good snipers can make an example of the chiefs, and hopefully the Indians will be put to flight.
Lol sometimes I am an idiot.
Yes it is 22 miles a day for nine days.
Sounds like the Mexican police are a bunch of maricones.
We got bombs!
Mental images of the Walking Dead.
The Golden Horde is coming. Apparently they are done looting and pillaging Central America.
