CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico — Despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, about 2,000 Central American migrants swam or rafted across a river separating that country from Guatemala, re-formed their mass caravan in Mexico and vowed to resume their journey toward the United States. The migrants, who said they gave up trying to enter Mexico legally because the asylum application process was too slow, gathered Saturday at a park in the border city of Ciudad Hidalgo. They voted by a show of hands to continue north en masse, then marched to the bridge crossing the Suchiate River and urged those still on it to come join them.

The decision to re-form the migrant caravan capped a day in … [Read more...] about Migrant caravan re-forms in Mexico, with members vowing to reach U.S.
Sonia Perez D. and Mark Stevenson Associated Press Published 8:47 PM EDT Oct 20, 2018 Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico – About 2,000 Central American migrants who circumvented Mexican police at a border bridge and swam, forded and floated across the river from Guatemala decided to re-form their mass caravan Saturday and continue their trek northward toward the United States. Gathered at a park in the border city of Ciudad Hidalgo, the migrants voted by a show of hands and then marched to the bridge to urge those still there to cross the river and join them. “Let’s all walk together!” and “Yes we can!” they cried. The group’s decision capped a day in which Mexican authorities again refused mass entry to migrants on the bridge, instead accepting small groups for asylum processing and giving out 45-day visitor permits to some of them. Mexico had sought to maintain order after a chaotic Friday in which thousands rushed across the bridge only to be … [Read more...] about Migrants vow to re-form caravan, continue toward US
