Pacific Daylight Time
Yesterday I finished the blog around 6:30pm, came back at about 11:30pm to add some more links and as I was editing, the entire blog just vanished. So, we'll try to pick up the pieces and BTW, it has been the Mexican News sources who have been covering the Caravana Migrante for weeks, finally the US MSM jumped in very late in the evening...and with no explanations of why this is happening, so let's do a little refresher course:

Good basic summary of historical events. Of course the US government will not address these issues, instead, today Trump called the migrantes "criminals".
How US Policy in Honduras set the Stage For Today's Mass Migration

Yesterday, La Jornada's Elio Henriquez reports a growing distrust of the migrantes towards the Mexican authorities, who at this point had flooded the area like gangbusters with two airplane loads of between 200-300 Federal Police to support the Immigration authorities. And it should be mentioned that two of the leaders of the migrantes had already been arrested with reports coming in that at least one of these leaders was beaten along with the migrantes around him by the Mexican Federal Police.

Which leads us to today's events, the storming of the gates by the migrantes - who were obviously spooked when the word got out that one of their leaders and some of their compadres had already been beaten up by the Mexican Federal Police in addition to enduring the burdens of tortured lives in their homeland. Most recent reports at the moment are that order has been restored. But not forgetting the past and present instances of the mano duro we need to really keep our eyes on this situation.
Here then are pictures, reports and videos from today :
