A growing throng of Central American migrants resumed their advance toward the U.S. border in southern Mexico Sunday, overwhelming Mexican government attempts to stop them at the border.Several hundred more already had applied for refugee status in Mexico and an estimated 1,500 were still on the Guatemalan side of the Suchiate River, hoping to enter legally.The decision to re-form the migrant caravan capped a day in which Mexican authorities again refused mass entry to migrants on the bridge, instead accepting small groups for asylum processing and giving out 45-day visitor permits to some. Authorities handed out numbers for people to be processed in a strategy seen before at U.S. border posts when dealing with large numbers of migrants.The caravan elicited a series of angry tweets and warnings from Trump early in the week, but Mexico's initial handling of the migrants at its southern border seemed to have satisfied him more recently.
