Another thousand fake refugees have shown up at the border on 2/2/2020 wanting to take revenge on the Mexican National Guard for earlier treatment of the first caravan that they turned back. This is in addition to about 100 that crossed into Guatemala, yesterday, in a different location. Another fracas with the Mexican National Guard may be developing.
NOTE: Now two days later, there has not been any confirming reports of this news, yet, as of 2/5/2020. It is just this one website, saying there are a thousand fake refugees waiting at the border at Tecan Uman on the Mexican Border for more to come. It looks like it could turn out to be fake news. Maybe this “Herald of Mexico” site is wildly exaggerating in order try to to encourage more to caravaners to assemble.
There have been multiple reports confirming that only a much smaller group of about 100 crossed the border from Honduras into Guatemala in another place, Agua Caliente. It is not clear whether they ever crossed the border into Mexico. If so, they may slipped into Mexico in small groups.

Migrants from El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua ready to enter Mexico through the border line with Guatemala
Approximately one thousand Central Americans await more people on the border line between Mexico and Guatemala, to organize themselves by caravan and cross the Suchiate River; Another group in Tapachula also threatens to join.
Although there are 170 people who left San Pedro Sula, Honduras, last Friday, via WhatsApp they were organized to await those arriving from El Salvador and Nicaragua. ‘They have arrived in small groups throughout the weekend,’ said authorities from Suchiate, Chiapas.
They are coming for revenge,’ added activist Luis García Villagrán. He said that many of those deported in the first caravan of 2020, return to the border line with all the intention of facing the National Guard, who maintain a permanent surveillance fence.
“We are warning that this caravan has been very manipulated to confront (the National Guard). It is the perfect pretext of the authorities to repress them, leave them without the right to shelter and deport them. ” They expect this new exodus to try to enter the country on Monday.
