[Ed. – Lucky Mexico. It does seem as if the recurrence of the caravans has slowed from two years ago.]
Mexican security forces used plastic shields to push back hundreds of Central American migrants who tried to force their way across a border bridge from Guatemala into Mexico on Saturday.
Lines of National Guard officers jostled with migrants, some of whom threw bottles and wielded sticks as they tried to push their way into Mexico. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has vowed to stop migrants from entering the country illegally as they try to reach the U.S.
The migrants are part of a group of some 1,500 people, mostly from Honduras, who gathered on the Guatemalan side of the Mexican border Friday. …
While a few migrants were able to force their way through the National Guard line, Mexican security forces were eventually able to shut the border gate across the bridge.
