>> After days of walking under the hot sun, hundreds of Central American migrants marching towards the US have been stalled in Mexico's southern state of Oaxaca after attracting the ire of President Donald Trump. Many of the members of this march, or so-called caravan, plan to apply for asylum at the US border.
While others will attempt to sneak in.>> God willing, to the United States. Yes, God willing, that's where we'll go.>> Reuters correspondent Delphine Schrank is traveling with the caravan which has been stuck at a park in the town of Matias Romero.>> Mexican authorities who had initially been quite receptive at the local level to the migrants.
Staying or passing through Mexico on their route to the United States, since President Donald Trump's tweets and the growth of this story into an international incident, Mexican authorities seem to be taking a very different stand, which is that now, they're not permitting the migrants to move on until they've all been registered.
>> This year marks the fifth such caravan, and the largest one yet, organized by a group called Pueblo Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders. The group is mostly comprised of Hondurans who have traveled on trains, buses, and on foot. Many are trying to flee gang violence, poverty, and political upheaval in their homeland.
>> A woman from Salvador who is here with her two children who told me she fled very quickly. She showed me the feet of one of her children as they had, had to leave Salvador and walk across Guatemala to the Mexican border. And the foot of one of her children was very clearly infected, he had not been seen by a doctor, and they're waiting now, and she said they don't have any money, to buy food, and so her children have been without food for a couple of days.
>> While many still intend to reach the US by any means possible, some are more than happy to stay in Mexico if they're granted refuge.
