According to the local press, the migrants overcame a police fence that precedes the border between Guatemala and Mexico, where the Mexican authorities had reinforced security with members of the Federal Police, although unarmed.

The members of the caravan that began in Honduras have a long way to go to reach the border with the United States, whose Foreign Minister, Mike Pompeo, described on Friday as a challenge to the sovereignty of his country the current flow of migrants.

It was in joint appearance with the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Luis Videgaray, who in turn stressed that Mexico is governed by its own laws on the issue of migration.

Caravan migrants are also waiting for the official Mexican reaction, whose government asked the UN for assistance in their registration.
