Pompeo: You will not be successful at getting into the United States illegally, no matter what. I repeat the caravan will not cross our southern border illegally under any circumstances. …I can tell you with certainty that we are determined that illegal entry into the United States from this caravan will not be possible.

Department of Homeland Security spokesman Tyler Q. Houlton said there are, in fact, gang members with “significant criminal histories” embedded within the caravan.

New details suggest the original caravan of Honduran migrants heading through Mexico has grown to 5,000 people (and potentially even 10,000), creating a line “two miles long.”

Mexican police have reportedly stood down.

Now, it is being learned that a second caravan is making its way to America, 2,000 migrants strong.

This second group approached Chiquimula, Guatemala on Sunday.

Here are some videos:

Here’s an interview with some of the “new” migrants:

Regarding the original caravan, per Daily Wire:

Hundreds of Central American migrants scrambled over a bridge wall and jumped into a river below as they battled to get past authorities stopping them at the Guatemala-Mexico border.

The mob swelled to at least 5,000 people — some estimates go as high as 10,000 — and once past police dressed in riot gear, they resumed their trek to the U.S.-Mexico border. The throng is currently marching toward the Mexican town of Tapachula, “10 abreast in a line stretching approximately a mile,” the Associated Press reported.

At the Suchiate River, some 700 federal p​olice officers from Mexico made no attempt to intervene as hundreds of young men dropped off the bridge into the water, then swam, floated or rafted to Mexico. They are still nearly 1,800 miles from El Paso, Texas, and Google Maps says that would take 573 hours on foot.
