Thousands of Honduran migrants tried to enter Mexico on Monday, attempting to cross over the Rodolfo Robles International Bridge between the Guatemalan town of Tecun Uman and Cuidad Hidalgo in Mexico, on their way to the United States.
The caravan of Honduran migrants that crossed Guatemala last week, started its early morning march, as seen in footage filmed in Tecun Uman, to try to cross the border bridge into Mexico.
They were met, however, with a closed bridge and Mexican national guards with riot gear deployed on the other side of the border.
Mexican and Guatemalan authorities met this weekend to coordinate actions to assist migrants who recently arrived at the border city.
The Mexican government said it would offer 4,000 jobs to migrants in the south of the country, and provide shelter or medical care to those who request it.
