To the United States border moved to the new "caravan" of migrants

Thousands of migrants, a lot of them Hondurans, broke through a metal fence separating Guatemala and Mexico and after clashing with police, poured across the border into Mexican territory. Guatemalan firefighters confirmed that a 26-year-old Honduran was killed from a rubber bullet hitting his head.

Ultimately, however, the migrants broke through the fence into Mexico, despite police opposition.

Mexican Interior Secretary Alfonso Navarrete says his country's police were not carrying guns, not even to fire rubber bullets.

The new group, whose members called themselves a second caravan, gathered on the global bridge leading from Tecun Uman to Mexico.

Martin Rojas, an agent from Mexico's migrant protection agency Grupo Beta, said he and his fellow agents planned to use agency pickup trucks to help stragglers catch up with the caravan.

Mexican immigration officials in the video urge the men to bring families to the front of the line and present their requests for transit in an orderly manner.

At least 60 migrants have already done so from the group stranded at the border.

An initial caravan of migrants - now comprising some 7,000 people, mainly Hondurans - departed from San Pedro Sula on October 13 heading for the U.S. and a large number of them are currently traversing far southern Mexico on foot after making it through Guatemala. Mexico has offered them asylum if they remain in the southern states of Chiapas and Oaxaca.

The migrants say they are fleeing violence, corruption and unemployment.

More than 300 migrants left the capital of El Salvador. The group organized via Facebook, emulating several other recent caravans that have come together to help migrants with scant financial resources make the trip without paying hefty fees to human traffickers. Instead, they cry foul when Trump points out obvious deficiencies in the current system and hope news organizations don't notice a group of thousands of people heading north to try to take advantage of our laxity.

The Trump administration is reportedly weighing an executive order that could block Central Americans from claiming asylum once they reach the USA border. Many have said they are coming to the U.S.to seek a better life, which would not qualify them for asylum under USA laws.

Raul Medina Melendez, security chief for the tiny municipality in Oaxaca state, said the town was distributing sandwiches and water to migrants camped in the central square Saturday night when a man with a megaphone asked people to wait their turn. Police rescued the man as he was being beaten and took him to a hospital for treatment, though his condition was not immediately clear.

Several caravan members denounced the attack on Sunday, the AP reported.

The group of roughly 4,000 people has chose to rest for the day in the town, which itself has a population of only about 7,500.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto launched a program on Friday dubbed "You are home", which promises shelter, medical attention, schooling and jobs to Central Americans who agree to stay in the southern Mexico states of Chiapas or Oaxaca, far from the USA border.

Migrants wait in line beside a water truck to brush their teeth and fill water bottles, as a caravan of Central Americans trying to reach the US border halts for a rest day in San Pedro Tapanatepec, Oaxaca state, Mexico, Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018.

Thousands of others continued north in their trek toward the U.S.

After another brutally hot day on the road with her husband and 8-year-old son, Alejandra Rodriguez said the possibility of health care and a work permit in Mexico sounded enticing.
