Honduran Migrants Have Entered Mexico!

The border gates were open only temporarily, but migrants - who crossed the bridge from Tecun-Uman to Ciudad Hidalgo - were surprised to find no locks on the gates, effectively giving them a free pass to enter the country without being stuck at the border or registering with immigration officials and now begin the trek to the USA border, which can range from between 1,000 to 2,500 miles depending on the point of entry.

At least 800 Central American migrants from a new caravan entered Mexico early Friday morning from its border with Guatemala, local authorities said. Although many consider this a humanitarian crisis and strive to help the migrants, other reports from Tijuana also spoke of a nationalistic rise against the migrants as protesters accused the migrants of being messy and called upon the Mexican government to carry out security checks in order to ensure there are no criminals among the group.

Migration officials did not reply to requests for comment on why the wrist bands were not required on Friday.

According to local media, the migrants illegally crossed the border bridge that connects the Mexican city of Hidalgo with the Guatemalan city of Tecun Uman.

Mexico's government said Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard planned to meet US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo soon for talks on their efforts to address the migration challenge.

Mexican authorities have been preparing for several weeks to head off the kind of violent incidents that occurred in October, when hundreds of undocumented migrants rushed Mexico's southern border, wading through river water to avoid checkpoints.

Mexico has promised to allow people through as long as they are orderly.

Milenio first reported on the incursion, reporting that Mexico's National Coordinator for Civil Protection David De Leon said he was not able to get a real headcount of the migrants but believes they numbered more than 800.

The migrant group proceeded on foot alongside cars on a highway, accompanied by federal police officers, arriving at a shelter in the city of Tapachula around midday.

Once the process of applying for a humanitarian visa is complete, the mainly Honduran migrants will have access to basic healthcare as well as the opportunity to search for work in Mexico.

In exchange, the Mexican leader asks Trump to put in money to improve economic conditions in the region.

Groups of migrants left El Salvador and Honduras last week, the latest in a string of caravans of people largely fleeing poverty and violence.
