Caravan migrants crossed the Mexico river, throw rocks at the country’s national guard.
The Associated Press reported that some of the migrants hit National Guardsmen with large rocks. Guardsmen carrying plastic shields, long staffs, and rifles pushed back as they attempted to gain control of the hundreds of migrants illegally crossing into their country.

VIDEO: I shot this of yesterday’s clash btwn Mexico’s National Guard and migrants who forded the border river. Many women and children caught in the rock-throwing that went both ways. Migrants reportedly slept on the riverbank and returned to Guatemala today. #MigrantCaravan pic.twitter.com/MzxocORa8G

A group of mostly Honduran caravan migrants began throwing rocks at Mexican security forces as they attempted to illegally cross the border from Guatemala on Monday.
After crossing the Suchiate River, some of the migrants making their way from Honduras to the United States began throwing rocks at Mexican National Guard troops assigned to stop the illegal border crossings, according to a report by the Associated Press. The apparent assaults came as Mexican authorities attempted to control the flow of migrants.
“You have two options: You go back to Guatemalan territory or you come with us,” Mexican guardsmen told the migrants who illegally crossed the river. Authorities told the migrants they could become “regularized” if they came with the guardsmen to processing centers.
Mexico told the migrant they were free to enter Mexico as long as they registered and applied for work in southern Mexico. The Mexican government repeated its position that the migrants would not be given free passage to the United States. More
Nothing quite says “Please let me in… I want to be a peaceful, law-abiding, successful, contributing member of your country” like throwing rocks at the border guards who screen your request for entry.
Instead of fighting with the Mexican National Guard and police they should be protesting their own governments.
If you illegally cross into another country waving your country’s flag… That’s called an invasion.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
