    CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico — Hundreds of Central American migrants crossed the river into Mexico from Guatemala Thursday after a dayslong standoff with security forces.

    Carrying U.S. and Honduran flags at the head of the procession, they walked along a highway toward hundreds of national guardsmen along the highway with riot shields and body armor and vans from the National Immigration Institute. The migrants still appeared to have superior numbers by at least double.


    Jose Luis Morales, a Salvadoran leader of the caravan, said the migrants want to negotiate to be allowed to pass peacefully.


    But Mexico has cracked down on the large caravans seen previously following intense pressure from Washington last year.


    Aníbal, who declined to give his last name for fear of reprisal from immigration authorities, joined the majority Honduran caravan from his hometown of Santa Rosa, Guatemala. He and others rested in the shade of a tree Thursday morning after walking for hours along the highway.

    He was determined to get to the U.S., no matter where, and work to save money and return to his wife and three kids. Back home he worked part time gigs as a laborer, machinist, selling used clothing, but there wasn’t enough work.


    “They need to let us pass,” he said.


    Asked about assertions from Mexico’s president that migration must be regular and orderly, he said:
    “He needs to have a little more compassion ... we’re going out of necessity. We’re not going for ambition.”


    Thursday’s movement was a resurgence of a migrant caravan that had been diminishing since its last concerted attempt to cross the border Monday was turned back by Mexican National Guardsmen posted along Suchiate river, which forms the border here.

    The migrants awoke with a plan Thursday. By 4:30 a.m. they had all packed their belongings and were just awaiting the call to move. They would not cross where Mexican authorities were posted across the river.


    They prayed for about an hour before leaving and then walked upriver on the Guatemala side in the dark to near another bridge that handles commercial traffic between the two countries.

    There were no Mexican authorities on the opposite bank.


    There the water was deeper, coming to the waist of a grown man, so a number of young men entered the river first and formed a human chain to keep the women and children who followed from being pulled by the current. When the first migrants crossed at 6 a.m., it was still pitch black.


    The national guardsmen awaited the caravan outside the community of Frontera Hidalgo, near Ciudad Hidalgo where the migrants crossed the Suchiate river at dawn.


    Mexico began flying and busing members of the caravan back to Honduras on Tuesday.


    Seven more buses left Mexico for Honduras on Wednesday, carrying 240 migrants back home, and two flights left with an additional 220 Hondurans, Mexico’s National Immigration Institute said. By Wednesday, the number of people outside the Casa del Migrante in Tecun Uman was perhaps half of what it was at its peak Sunday night.


    In previous caravans, Mexican authorities have allowed caravans to walk for awhile, seemingly to tire them out, and then closed their path.


    While the migrants have been receiving steady local media coverage since they arrived at the border, they have not surpassed topics of security, economy or corruption in the public agenda.

    On Thursday, a multi-day march for truth, justice and peace departed the central Mexico city of Cuernavaca bound for the capital.


    Meanwhile, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s two-hour daily press conference was dominated by questions about the supply of cancer drugs as parents of children with cancer protested outside the national palace.


    He has faced some criticism from the left for the more aggressive response to migrants, but seemingly not enough to blunt his high popularity.

    Send every one of them back! No exceptions.

    Mexico does not want them.

    USA does not want them.

    Go dump yourselves on your President's doorstep to solve your problems.

    Start with putting your gangs in prisons and clean up your own country.

    No money, no aid, no oatmeal, no entry!!!

    These people have no jobs no income they don't have a pot to piss in and in the pictures they are always wearing brand new clothing shaved and groomed. I call bullshit on this. Who is paying for their new clothing ? Americans are shopping at the salvation army for used clothing. Can someone tell us where this money is coming from to bring them here ? We need to know who is funding this NOW. I have zero tolerance for this bullshit and I will not hire them. See the picture of the child on top of this man ? She is probably pregnant at the age of 8 years old.
