Scores of people who entered Guatemala from Honduras in recent days have been arriving at the Mexican border, with the bulk of them still advancing in a larger caravan, testing the resolve of Mexico to heed U.S. demands to contain migrant flows.

Numerous migrants are seeking to escape poverty, violence or other social problems in Central America.

The migrants, some travelling in groups as small as a dozen people while others formed caravans of more than 100, said they planned to unite at the Guatemalan border city of Tecun Uman before crossing together into Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico.

President Alejandro Giammattei of Guatemala, who was sworn into office this week, said Wednesday that his government would honor Central American migration agreements that permitted Hondurans to enter Guatemala as long as they had proper identification.

Chaos broke out at the border between Honduras and Guatemala last week as caravan migrants pushed past Honduran police to forcibly enter Guatemala, Breitbart Texas reported on Thursday.

With deals also signed with Honduras and El Salvador, the Trump administration is also expected to start sending asylum seekers to the other two Northern Triangle countries as well.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has launched a series of initiatives to create jobs in the poorer south.

Migrants carrying Honduran flags walk along a highway in hopes of reaching the distant United States. The town is located near the Guatemala-Honduras worldwide border.

Past caravans have had an overwhelming effect on the US immigration system, but it's unlikely this most recent surge will reach the southern border, as Mexican officials remain on high alert and had vowed to block hundreds of mostly Honduran migrants hoping to reach the United States.

Guatemalan officials have counted more than 3,000 migrants who registered at border crossings to enter that country in recent days and there were additional migrants who did not register.

It's unclear what will happen if the migrants reach the southern border to make an asylum claim, or are picked up by patrols attempting to cross between points of entry. The U.S. ICE agents are assigned to assist Guatemalan law enforcement authorities under an agreement negotiated by the Trump administration in 2019. "However, the country must first provide "access to a full and fair procedure for determining a claim to asylum" in order to qualify as safe".

Next Tuesday will mark the one-year anniversary of the migrant caravans' arrival at the Mexico-U.S. border.
