Another contingent is trying to make additional headway by pushing to Tierra Blanca, Veracruz, which lies about 80 extra miles (128 kilometers) to the north.
The US President has already attacked undocumented immigrants ahead of next week's mid-terms by announcing plans to send at least 5,200 active-duty troops ― and possibly as many as 15,000 ― to the southern border to address migrant caravans, which are now 900 miles away.
President Trump on Thursday said he'll sign an executive order next week that will crack down on asylum seekers and end the process of "catch and release" as part of his efforts to halt a caravan of thousands of Central American migrants marching to the USA border.
The president's warning comes after it was revealed his administration was reportedly told that "only a small percentage" of migrants would end up making it to the US border as part of the ongoing caravan making its way through Mexico.
"President Obama separated the children from their parents and nobody complained", he said.
In June, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that domestic and gang violence would generally no longer be accepted as reasons for migrants to be granted asylum. "When they throw rocks, like they did at the Mexico military and police, I said, consider that a rifle".
Greg Chen of the American Immigration Lawyers Association said Trump was "trying to scare the American public into thinking these are thousands of risky thugs".
There were also protesters gathered outside each entrance to the Upper East Side building, carrying signs calling for the release of asylum seekers and showing closeup images of the ankle monitors used to track detained migrants waiting to face immigration court.
The migrants had already made a grueling 40-mile (65-kilometer) trek from Juchitan, Oaxaca, on Thursday, after they failed to get the bus transportation they had hoped for.
"I just don't want these people throwing rocks", Trump said on Friday. Well, we're not releasing them into our country any longer. The Salvadorans expressed misgivings that they would be deported, so they turned around and waded across a shallow stretch of the river to enter Mexico.
The caravan, now some 5,000 people, set off from Honduras several weeks ago.
The migrants in the caravans are mostly from Honduras, where it started, as well as El Salvador and Guatemala.
Since 2014, Central American families and unaccompanied children, often seeking asylum, have made up a greater proportion of all apprehensions than in the past, making swift deportations more complicated.
Immigration agents and police have been nibbling at the edges of the two caravans farthest ahead.
The president, who has ordered USA troops to the border with Mexico, also suggested rock-throwing by migrants would be treated as equivalent to gun usage. There has also been pressure on the main caravan, with federal police pulling over freight trucks that pick up migrants and forcing them off, saying that clinging to the tops or sides of the trucks was risky.
"This caravan, this group of poor people, including a lot of women and children, doesn't pose a threat not a national security threat". They were exhausted and dehydrated, pleading for water as most had had none all day.
He has said he hopes to send as many as 15,000 troops to the border to stop caravans of thousands of migrants heading to the USA from Central America.
The Trump administration says such measures are necessary because it is not equipped to deal with a large increase in the number of asylum seekers, many of them from Central America.
Retired Col. Paul Yingling, who commanded US troops in Iraq, was blunter.
"We aren't killers", said Stephany Lopez, a 21-year-old Salvadoran with the first caravan.
It says initially a $1 billion investment was diverted and in subsequent phases money was siphoned from sales of 1MDB bonds. In June, anti-corruption investigators questioned Najib's wife about alleged theft and money-laundering.
When asked by Sky Sports about his return to football , Wenger said: "Certainly at the beginning of 2019". They have a chance - but at the moment we have some other teams who look very strong as well".
He called it "outrageous that the president can think he can override constitutional guarantees by issuing an executive order. Trump and many top aides have long seen the immigration issue as the most effective rallying cry for his base of supporters.
The trip could be twice as long if the migrants head for the Tijuana-San Diego frontier, as another caravan did earlier this year. But the core group of mostly Honduran migrants has rejected his entreaty and continued heading north toward the USA border.
