But even as the USA -bound caravan moved into Mexico, Mexican police in riot gear were deployed at highway junctions, as a military helicopter circled overhead, prompting many migrants to wonder if police will make mass arrests and seek to turn the caravan back.
Watch: Migrants break Guatemala-Mexico border fence on Friday.
A large, US -bound group of Central American migrants that President Donald Trump has been attacking all week reached Mexico's southern border Friday and started to cross over after a clash with law enforcement.
The caravan of Central American migrants has anywhere from 5,000 to 10,000 people - mainly from Honduras - according to estimates.
The migrants include many parents travelling with young children. This is the right approach: people generally don't want to leave their homes if they can live normal, safe lives there. As the afternoon drew on, a tropical storm, Vicente, formed nearby off the Pacific coast.
An unidentified police officer told Reuters there were no orders to block the caravan.

Presidents Hernandez of Honduras and Jimmy Morales of Guatemala held an emergency meeting at a Guatemalan air base. But if Mexico throws up their hands and allows them to make it all the way through their country or simply fails to intercept a significant portion of them it will become our problem.
Trump has threatened to halt aid to Honduras and Guatemala, and potentially close the USA border with Mexico with the help of the military if the migrants' march is not stopped.
Such a move by Mr. Trump would cause chaos on the border, one of the world's busiest, and badly disrupt trade.
"They're not coming into this country", Trump added.
Hundreds of Central American migrants scrambled over a bridge wall and jumped into a river below as they battled to get past authorities stopping them at the Guatemala-Mexico border.
US President Donald Trump, who's been criticizing the caravan with fiery tweets all week, reiterated his threat Friday that if Mexico doesn't stop the migrants, he'll take more drastic action.
On Friday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called illegal immigration a "crisis", and insisted that migrants must be stopped before reaching the USA border. But as of this moment, I thank Mexico.
They seemed likely to be people who had been waiting on the bridge over the Suchiate River or in the Guatemalan town of Tecun Uman and who made a decision to cross during the night. Mexico has sought help from the United Nations' refugee agency, which may have the effect of dispersing the caravan.
And while immigration was a key issue in the president's 2016 victory, a CBS News poll out Friday says his approval rating on immigration is just 39 percent- the lowest on any issue.
Morales said a Honduran migrant died in the town of Villa Nueva, 20 miles (30 kilometres) from Guatemala City, when he fell from a truck.
Sairy Bueso, a 24-year old Honduran mother of two, was another migrant who abandoned the bridge and crossed into Mexico via the river.
While a Mexican federal police helicopter hovered overhead, hundreds of migrants remained massed on the bridge, demanding that they be allowed to cross.
