Migrants, troops slowly build up on Guatemala-Mexico border
By MARÍA VERZA
TECUN UMAN, Guatemala (AP) - More than 200 mostly Honduran migrants are resting on a bridge at the Guatemala-Mexico border waiting for the arrival of others and hoping that their sheer numbers will improve their chances of entering Mexico and continuing their journey north. While across the river in Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico, National Guard troops with riot shields trucked in throughout the afternoon in anticipation of the migrants' next move. Mexico's government has said that migrants entering the country without registering will not be allowed to pass from the border area. But those seeking asylum or other protections will be allowed to apply and legalize their status.
