As a migrant caravan, stretching for miles continues inexorably to our southern border another group of about 1,000 migrants from Honduras is rushing to catch up. 

Within its ranks are, reportedly, several people who have already faced deportation. 

Greg Norman, at Fox News, explains:
    

The caravan, which has around 5,000 to 7,000 members, was on the move again Monday morning, departing the southern Mexico city of Tapachula. The smaller group trailing it entered Guatemala from Honduras late Sunday, according to the Associated Press.

“They catch you, and you try to get back,” said 
Imner Anthony Fuentes, a 29-year-old who reportedly was deported for the sixth time from the U.S. five months ago. He has a son and a U.S. citizen girlfriend living in Birmingham, Ala., the Washington Post reported.

Footage captured by a Fox News crew traveling with the caravan showed trucks handing out food, water 
and toilet paper to the migrants.

"My dream is 
get to the border if we could. If we can't we are going to have to cross the river some way, somehow," a Honduran migrant who identified himself as Edwin told Fox News. As he spoke, a truck with people hanging onto the doors and sides passed behind him.


With the caravans hoping to infiltrate the U.S.-Mexico border, President Trump has vowed to call up more active duty service members to turn them back.
