On Friday a movement to bring to the U.S. thousands of illegals from Honduras and Guatemala was orchestrated through a well-funded caravan that tore down the border gate in Guatemala and stormed the border bridge into Mexico.
Mexican authorities clashed with the Hondurans CNN reported.
But thousands still came and the Mexican police stood by and did nothing, as pictures by eyewitnesses reveal:

Seems like orders by MX gov’t were: don’t let ppl cross the bridge (Trump won’t like that image) but doesn’t matter if they get in elsewhere.
Police walk by 100s of migrants who crossed illegally at plaza in Cd Hidalgo, MX, making calls & washing clothes, and don’t do anything. pic.twitter.com/yVrGmMoXvd

Caravan migrants on their trek to the US arrived at the border bridge separating Mexico, Guatemala in hopes of continuing their passage north, defying Pres. Trump's threats of retaliation as some were seen jumping into the Suchiate River to journey onward. https://t.co/uQty0Gdwdv pic.twitter.com/LtfXfkF6ak
