"We are not letting people into the United States illegally".

The 34-year-old left his home in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras, and travelled into Guatemala and then Mexico with the initial wave of migrants and refugees, dubbed a migrant caravan.

Under U.S. law, foreign nationals fleeing persecution have the right to apply for asylum once they reach American soil, but the executive order under consideration would suspend that provision and bar Central Americans as a matter of national security, according to those familiar with the proposal.

Mexico has offered temporary identification papers and jobs to migrants who register for asylum in the country, stepping up efforts to halt the advance of a US-bound caravan that has angered Washington.

"They have been drafted as President Donald Trump and his national security adviser, John Bolton, have grown increasingly frustrated with the number of migrants arriving at the southern border and the Honduran migrant caravan now making its way to the U.S", adds the article. USA officials have said that up to 1,000 troops may be sent to the southern border to prevent the migrants from crossing.

Thousands of migrants have refused Mexico's offer, however, pledging to continue north.

"Our goal is not to remain in Mexico", Honduran Oscar Sosa, 58, said.

"We want a better future for our children", added Martinez.

Coverage of thousands of migrants bent on reaching the United States has drawn strong words from the president.

"It's a big caravan", Trump told a gathering of young black conservative leaders at the White House.

Honduras said 4,500 of its citizens attempting to emigrate have returned to the country in recent days.

Marianna Trevino Wright, a South Texas resident who is director of the nonprofit National Butterfly Center, said she is more fearful of the militias than the caravan. Trump has railed against Central American governments for not doing enough to stop the caravan and cited the incident as a reason for tightening immigration laws in the US.

"This caravan can not come to the United States", Nielsen said.

According to organizers, some 5,500 men, women and children are taking part in the migrant caravan, while authorities put the number at 3,630. Martin Rojas, an agent from Mexico's migrant protection agency Grupo Beta, said officials have begun handing out water and giving rides to stragglers in the agency's pickup trucks.

"Some days there is work, some days there is not", he told Al Jazeera, adding that his hope is to find a job in order to provide for his young family - whether that is in the U.S. or in Mexico.

"These are mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers who have been forced from their homes by unimaginable violence and insecurity; runaway corruption; and droughts and floods linked to climate change", the organization of leaders of women religious said in its statement.

The Hope Border Institute of El Paso, Texas, published information October 26 about the group being referred to as a "caravan", which it says numbers between 3,000 and 7,000 people and, of those, about 2,000 are youth and children.

The business now works because it can smuggle migrants into the United States where they can get underground jobs to pay for the smuggling services.
