The group had swelled to roughly 7,000 by Monday, stretching more than 2 miles, reported Los Angeles Times.
Two people burn a United States flag in front of the American Embassy, on October 19, 2018, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, during a protest in favor of the caravan of migrants that is now stuck on the Guatemala-Mexico border. "Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in", he said on Twitter.
Meanwhile, American flags were burned in Honduras in support of the caravan while U.S. President Donald Trump followed through on a threat and cut aid to Central American countries. Watch Pete Hegseth bring that up in the video above, and make the leap to tie that comment to the caravan of immigrants.
The Department of Justice must investigate funding behind the massive migrant caravan heading ot the USA border, and the people traveling from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador won't be able to make a legitimate asylum claim once they arrive, Rep. Louie Gohmert said Monday.
Most Central American immigrants that try to enter the USA undocumented travel along the same risky route, known as El Tren de la Muerte ("The Train of Death").
More than 3,400 Hondurans migrants were returned to their home country over the weekend, according to a migrant assistance body.

He has threatened to stop giving aid to countries like Honduras and Guatemala, where numerous migrants have come from.
"Full efforts are being made to stop the onslaught of illegal aliens from crossing our [southern] border", he tweeted.
The Monday morning tweets marked the latest escalation by the president, who is seeking to re-inject immigration politics into the national conversation in the closing weeks of the midterm elections.
The migrants, who said they gave up trying to enter Mexico legally because the asylum application process was too slow, had gathered on Saturday at a park in the border city of Ciudad Hidalgo.
They aren't the first Central American migrants to chart that path.
The size of a migrant caravan marching north toward the United States border is increasing in size even as President Trump escalates his rhetoric.
"We're urging people against migrating in an unlawful way and putting your children in extremely unsafe conditions", Garcia de Hernandez said in a statement.
The Trump administration welcomes the Government of Mexico's collaboration with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) to address refugee and migration issues in the region, including the influx of people arriving in Mexico.
