Honduran migrants take part in a caravan towards the United States in Chiquimula Guatemala

Mexican officials are refusing to yield to demands from a caravan of Central American migrants that they be allowed to enter the country en masse from a border bridge with Guatemala where they camped out overnight.

A group of Central American migrants wade across the Suchiate River, on the the border between Guatemala and Mexico, in Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico, Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018.

"We're going to make it, we're going to keep moving so long as they don't stop us", said Honduran Jaffe Borjas, 17, marching alongside a childhood friend at the head of the column that stretched far down the highway to the horizon.

Some of the migrants, who are recognized to be fleeing violence, political instability, and the poor economic conditions of their native homelands in Central and South America, hope to stay and work in Mexico.

Numerous migrants, the overwhelming majority fleeing violence and poverty in Honduras, slept on the bridge through heavy rain overnight, dozens of them crammed against a metal border gate guarded by Mexican police.

President Trump said the United States will "turn away" the thousands of Central American migrants heading to the U.S. border in search of asylum and blamed Democrats for being weak on immigration.

He said: "I don't want them in our country". They were taken safely on a raft to Mexican territory.

A growing crowd of Central American migrants is resuming its advance toward the USA border in southern Mexico on Sunday.

President Trump has made it an issue in the midterm election and threatened to cut aid to Central American nations, close the U.S. -Mexico border and deploy troops there if Mexico failed to stop the migrants.

"Violent entry into the country not only threatens our sovereignty, but also puts the migrants themselves at risk", Pena Nieto said in a video published on his social media profiles.

Organizers of the caravan said a section of the crowd had confronted the police and spoiled what had been an orderly attempt to cross into Mexico.

"We're running away from violence, and we arrive here and they just hit us more", sobbed 28-year-old Marta Ornelas Cazares, who was nursing her baby - but had lost her other two children, aged 10 and 15, in the turmoil.

Asked in the Televisa interview whether Mexico was doing Trump's "dirty work", Videgaray said Mexico "defines its migration policy in a sovereign manner" and the country's priority is to protect the migrants and ensure their human rights.

But the slow pace frustrated those stuck on the bridge, where conditions were hot and cramped, and some pleaded at the main gate: "Please let us in, we want to work!" Some have been swimming and rafting across into Mexico.

The president has repeatedly claimed that the migrants, and immigrants more broadly, lead to increased crime rates and allow illegal substances to pass over the border, although statistics suggest they do not.

The caravan was headed for Tapachula, a city about 37 km (23 miles) north of the Mexico-Guatemala border, the officers told CNN.

These pictures capture the scenes unfolding on the Guatemala-Mexico border.

Most of the migrants who had gathered there were from Honduras, but there were also people from El Salvador and Guatemala, Frederick said.

"So as of this moment, I thank Mexico, " Trump said Friday at an event in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Sairy Bueso, a 24-year old Honduran mother of two, was another migrant who abandoned the bridge and crossed into Mexico via the river.
