    Caravan migrant dies in clash at border bridge

    The Latest: Migrant dies in clash at border bridge

    Associated Press
    OCTOBER 28, 2018 — 10:25PM


    TAPANATEPEC, Mexico — The latest on the caravan of Central American migrants making their way through southern Mexico (all times local):

    9:20 p.m.

    A 26-year-old Honduran migrant has died of a head wound after a group of migrants clashed with Guatemalan and Mexican police on a border bridge between the two countries.

    Guatemalan volunteer firefighters said they tried to treat the man Sunday but the injury apparently from a rubber bullet was too severe.


    The Honduran migrants broke down the metal gates at the Guatemalan and Mexican border stations at the Suchiate River after authorities in both countries closed them. Firefighters said dozens of people were hurt.


    Mexican Interior Secretary Alfonso Navarrete says his country's police were not carrying guns, not even to fire rubber bullets. He says federal police were attacked with "stones, firecrackers, glass bottles and glass bottles," and some of the aggressors were carrying firearms and gasoline bombs.


    Navarrete said Mexico was in communication with Central American governments about the disturbances and "rejects the displays of violence that occurred today at the border with Guatemala."

    3:35 p.m.

    More than a hundred Central American migrants have forced their way through a customs gate at the Guatemalan border town of Tecun Uman to request passage into Mexico.


    A Mexican official said Sunday that the group is seeking entry via Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico.


    Video from the Guatemalan newspaper Prensa Libre showed men arguing with Mexican immigration officials through the metal bars of a gate separating the two countries.


    Mexican immigration officials in the video urge the men to bring families to the front of the line and present their requests for transit in an orderly manner.


    Cesar Quinonez is a volunteer firefighter in Tecun Uman and he told The Associated Press by phone that several

    Guatemalan police officers and migrants were injured as the group kicked and pushed its way through the gate on the Guatemalan side of the border. He says several people received medical treatment for exposure to tear gas fired by police.


    A larger group of thousands of Central American migrants has been winding its way through southern Mexico with the goal of reaching the U.S. border. Mexico has offered them asylum if they remain in the southern states of Chiapas and Oaxaca.

    11:40 a.m.
    Another group of Central American migrants is setting out in a caravan in hopes that the strength of numbers will help them reach the United States.
    About 300 Salvadorans departed Sunday from the Plaza El Salvador del Mundo in the capital of San Salvador. The group organized via Facebook, emulating several other recent caravans that have come together to help migrants with scant financial resources make the trip without paying hefty fees to human traffickers.
    It's unclear who organized the new group.
    The group must travel about 75 miles (120 kilometers) to reach the border with Guatemala and another 185 miles (300 kilometers) to reach Mexico's southernmost border.
    A caravan of thousands of Central American migrants is currently making its way through southern Mexico, however Mexican authorities said Friday they had prevented a separate, smaller group from advancing.
    ___
    8:45 a.m.
    A local official in southern Mexico says a disturbance broke out at the encampment of Central American migrants trying to make their way through southern Mexico toward the U.S.
    Municipal security chief Raul Medina Melendez in the town of Tapanatepec says that some in the crowd grew upset when a man with a megaphone urged them to line up and wait their turn for sandwiches and water the town was distributing late Saturday.
    He says some began to attack him and he fled down a street. A false rumor spread that the man had grabbed a child for protection from the attackers.
    The assailants caught and beat him, but police intervened and he was treated at a hospital.
    As Sunday dawned, several in the crowd took to a microphone to chide their colleagues for the attack and urge better behavior.
    The group of roughly 4,000 people has decided to rest for the day in the town, which itself has a population of only about 7,500.

    It is sad the young man died. These foreign citizens aiming to crash our borders have no respect for borders or for the rule of law or for the impact on others' lives. They are an invading mob that threatens all in their path.

    It was not from a rubber bullet so why did the AP report "apparently from a rubber bullet", so who is telling the tales now? They injured many people, they are violent thugs. They should be arrested and put in jail, then prosecuted. They came armed with the stones and gasoline bombs.

    I appreciate the countries of Guatemala and Mexico for putting up a fight. They are simply outnumbered.

    Guatemalan and Mexican law enforcement's heart really isn't into stopping the caravan. Their willfully lacking attempts at stopping the caravans are mostly for show (IMO). Deep down I'd bet most of the individual police officers want to see the caravans succeed in crashing our border!

    U.S.-bound migrants enter Guatemala, others clash at border

    SONSONATE, El Salvador/TAPANATEPEC, Mexico (Reuters) - A new group of migrants bound for the United States set off from El Salvador and crossed into Guatemala on Sunday, following thousands of other Central Americans fleeing poverty and violence who have taken similar journeys in recent weeks.


    The group of more than 300 Salvadorans left the capital San Salvador on Sunday. A larger group of mostly Hondurans, estimated to number between 3,500 and 7,000, who left their country in mid-October and are now in southern Mexico, has become a key issue in U.S. congressional elections.


    A third group broke through a gate at the Guatemala border with Mexico in Tecun Uman on Sunday, and clashed with police.

    Local first responders said that security forces used rubber bullets against the migrants, and that one person, Honduran Henry Adalid, 26, was killed.


    Six police officers were injured, said Beatriz Marroquin, the director of health for the Retalhuleu region.


    Mexico's Interior Minister Alfonso Navarrete told reporters on Sunday evening that federal police did not have any weapons, even to fire plastic bullets.


    He said that some of the migrants had guns while others had Molotov cocktails, and this information had been passed on to other Central American governments.


    Guatemala's government said in a statement that it regrets that the migrants didn't take the opportunity of dialogue and instead threw stones and glass bottles at police.


    U.S. President Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans have sought to make immigration a major issue ahead of Nov. 6 elections, in which the party is battling to keep control of Congress.


    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on "Fox News Sunday" said Trump was determined to use every authority he had to stop immigrants from crossing the border illegally.


    "We have a crisis at the border right now ... This caravan is one iteration of that but frankly we essentially see caravans every day with these numbers," she said.


    "I think what the president is making clear is every possible action, authority, executive program, is on the table to consider, to ensure that it is clear that there is a right and legal way to come to this country and no other ways will be tolerated," Nielsen added.


    Trump has threatened to shut down the border with Mexico and last week said he would send troops. On Friday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis authorized the use of troops and other military resources at the U.S.-Mexico border.


    BLISTERING HEAT

    By Sunday evening, hundreds of the Salvadorans had crossed the border into Guatemala, having walked and hitched rides in pickups and on buses from the capital.


    They organized using social networks like Facebook and WhatsApp over the last couple of weeks, inspired by the larger group in Mexico.


    Salvadoran police traveled with the group, who carried backpacks and water bottles and protected themselves from the hot sun with hats.


    Several migrants, gathered by the capital's 'Savior of the World' statue before leaving, said they were headed to the United States.


    El Salvador's left-wing government said it had solidarity with the migrants and respected their right to mobilize, but urged them not to risk their lives on the way.


    In Mexico, the original group of Hondurans, exhausted by constant travel in blistering heat, spent Sunday resting up in the town of Tapanatepec, Oaxaca, planning to head north at 3 am on Monday.


    "It's far ... the farthest yet," said Honduran Bayron Baca, 26, pulling open a map that Red Cross volunteers had given him in a medical tent.


    Dozens took dips in a nearby river to refresh themselves from the trek, which has covered an average 30 miles (48 km) a day.


    An estimated 2,300 children were traveling with the migrant caravan, UNICEF said in a statement, adding that they needed protection and access to essential services like healthcare, clean water and sanitation.


    Eduardo Grajales, a Red Cross volunteer in Arriaga, Mexico, attending to migrants on Friday night, said the worst case his colleagues had seen that day was of a baby so badly sunburned from the tropical heat, he had to be hospitalized.

    Frankly, I am sick of this being an election issue. It was a HUGE election last time, and here we are faced with a continuous invasion.

    We voted for you to do something about this, not keep it as an election issue from now to eternity!
