Manelich Castilla told Foro TV the migrants will enter in an orderly fashion.

Mexico's Videgaray said in an interview with the Televisa network that those who want to apply for refuge in Mexico are welcome to do so "if they have a vulnerable situation in their country of origin".

On the bridge, some of the migrants were hanging from the closed gate that represents the border at Tacun Uman, Guatemala, and Mexico, wailing and saying they were hungry.

Seeking to maintain order after a chaotic Friday in which thousands rushed across the border bridge only to be halted by a phalanx of officers in riot gear, authorities began handing out numbers for people to be processed in a strategy seen before at US border posts when large numbers of migrants show up there.

Francisca: I joined the caravan because I was afraid to come on my own but I want my children to have a better life than me.

Many Central Americans in a mass caravan at the Mexican border with Guatemala appear inclined to apply for any kind of refugee status in Mexico, even though most initially meant to make it to the United States.

"One way or another, we will pass", they chanted, climbing atop US-donated military jeeps parked at the scene.

"We are going to the United States!" he shouted euphorically.

Mexican officials have said that those without papers would have to apply for refugee status or turn back.

Earlier, Honduran President said he had requested permission from Guatemala's government to send forces to help Honduran citizens return home.

Numerous migrants who camped overnight on the bridge have complained about a lack of food, fresh water and bathroom facilities.

Mexico has implemented what the ambassador to Guatemala calls a "metered entry" system to try to control the vast numbers of people who are traveling there from other Central American countries.

"There is nothing there", Orellana said.

Four Mexican police officers were injured in the standoff at the Mexican border, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday.

"May Trump's heart be touched so he lets us through", Rodriguez said.

Immigration advocates and experts on global refugee law say that providing transit documents to those in search of protection would be the reasonable and humane response. But police on the Mexican side of the bridge pepper sprayed and pushed them back, CBS News said, adding that about 50 managed to get through.

The U.S. president has made it clear to Mexico that he is monitoring its response.

On Thursday, the government of Mexico dispatched two Boeing 727s filled with police and military personnel to the country's southern border with Guatemala in preparation of preserving law and order upon the caravan's arrival.

Throughout the week, federal police aircraft arrived in the city of Tapachula, near the border with Guatemala, with hundreds of federal officers equipped with antiriot gear. More than 150 members of that group crossed the border and sought asylum.

"Foreign Secretary Videgaray and I have talked about the importance of stopping this flow before it reaches the US border".

After his tweeted threats to cut foreign aid payments to Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador apparently failed to affect the massive caravan marching toward the U.S., President Trump ramped up the rhetoric and included a new target: Mexico.
