A second migrant caravan of around 2,000 people is on the move through southern Mexico, heading toward the US border.
This smaller group is similar to the first migrant caravan, which infuriated US President Donald Trump and fuelled his anti-immigration message ahead of the midterm elections.
The group managed to cross the Suchiate River separating Mexico from Guatemala to the south on Monday.
At one point they clashed with Mexican security forces on a bridge and one member of the caravan was reported killed.
On Tuesday they covered about 25km and settled down for the night in the town of Tapachula in the state of Chiapas, an AFP reporter said.
Like the larger caravan, this one is made up mostly of Hondurans and includes women and children.
And like their colleagues moving further up north, these people have rejected an offer from Mexico of medical care, schooling for their kids and temporary work permits if they stop traveling and request asylum in Chiapas or Oaxaca.
The first caravan, which has dwindled and now numbers some 4,000 people, according to an aide group called Pueblos sin Fronteras, arrived Tuesday in the town of Juchitan, in Oaxaca.
They were spending Tuesday night in tents in an abandoned bus station.
Mr Trump has announced he is sending more than 5,000 soldiers to shore up the US-Mexico border as he talks up what he calls a ‘migrant invasion’ to appeal to his right-wing base ahead of the congressional vote next Tuesday.
This week, Mr Trump tweeted: “Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border. Please go back, you will not be admitted into the United States unless you go through the legal process. This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!”
