FULL TITLE: Caravan's plea for buses is DENIED: Migrants must walk the remaining 900 miles to nearest US border as Mexico ignores demand for transport
Exhausted men, women and children traveling in the largest of the four caravans headed to the US resumed their journey on foot before dawn Thursday after Mexican authorities refused to provide them with buses.
The migrants planned to take advantage of cool overnight and morning temperatures by hitting the road at 3am in Juchitan for a trek to the town of Matias Romero en route to the Gulf coast city of Veracruz, which is a common transit route toward the nearest Mexico-US border crossing in McAllen, Texas.
Organizers previously said their destination was Santa Maria Jalape del Marques in Oaxaca state, but they have decided to change the planned route.
The migrants will have to walk nearly 40 miles from Juchitan to Matias Romero, and from there it's another 445 miles to Veracruz.
The participants of the 4,000-strong caravan have not said what route they intend to take northward or where on the US border they planned to reach, and Juchitan, still about 900 miles from US soil, was something of a crossroads.
Choosing Jalapa del Marques as the next stop appeared to indicate they are opting to travel via Oaxaca state's eponymous capital instead of turning north toward the Gulf coast state of Veracruz, which is a common transit route toward McAllen, Texas.
On Wednesday evening it became clear that Mexican officials were not acceding to the caravan's demand that dozens of buses be provided to whisk the migrants to Mexico City.
'The attempt to travel by bus failed,' caravan coordinator Walter Cuello acknowledged.

chode will you post it, you know what...
Think Pompeo had a call to the SOS Mexico? Bet they talked about closing the border both ways to people and goods. Buses, we ain’t got no stinking buses.
*Cue “Ha ha,” Simpsons guy.”
Trump’s pressure on Mexico’s elite is starting to work.
Fears that he may use his troops to close the border to ALL traffic appears to have gotten their minds right.
They want to go to Mexico City, pop. 20 milion, where they can get lost to authorities.
Ok, Walter Cuello - who is this guy?
Looks like a Gringo name to me.
He needs to be indicted for “human trafficking”!
That's when the Mexicans suddenly discovered: "Buses, we aint got no steenking buses."
They are proud people.
They are A proud people.
--snip-- Trump's immigration surprise has been prepared for several months. A week before midterms, Pres Trump announces that he is preparing an E/O that children of illegals born in the US will not automatically obtain American citizenship. It will be given only to those whose parents are in the United States legally.....includes only American citizens and legal residents. At the same time, Trump no longer needs to rush the E/O. His goal is political.
Trump knows that 2/3 of Americans support his decision, and he is well aware that a long-term legal battle awaits; Democrats will defend the interests of immigrants rather than Americans.Trump is not interested in the decisions of the American courts. It is quite possible that he will even lose in the courts. However, the White House understands that you need to win the mid-term elections first, and then deal with legal issues.
Trump's immediate goal is not a game of immigration and intellectual tug-of-war with the Democrats and the courts, but the November mid-terms. (Excerpt) Read more at garygindler.com
Oh, no! The caravan invaders just got thrown under the buses.
We need to start dropping leaflets on the caravan showing pictures of our military guarding the border. That should give them the incentive to turn back now.
Funny shit. They break the immigration laws of Mexico, then demand transport to do more lawbreaking.
Thank you for attacking the doublespeak.
We need to make sure they’re NOT hopping on buses and trucks in the dead of night... and if they do we need to have the FBI track down who’s paying for the buses.
Won’t someone please stop them from walking! Think of the children!
If this weren’t so high profile, there’d be buses. The optics of large quantities of ‘migrants’ loading up in buses to be whisked up to the border doesn’t help the cause.
