Migrants depart Mexico City and start heading towards the U.S.

Mexico has offered refuge asylum or work visas but few of the migrants have accepted the offers

On Thursday, caravan representatives met with officials from the local United Nations office and demanded buses to take them to the border, saying the trek would be too hard and unsafe for walking and hitchhiking.

Caravan coordinator Milton Benitez said officials had offered them buses for women and children but organizers demanded that they be for everyone.

When the group arrived in Queretaro, they were met by volunteers offering them tortillas, sandwiches and rice, according to the Associated Press.

The advanced group hoped to reach the north-central city of Queretaro, about 105 miles (170 kilometers) to the northwest, by nightfall.

By late afternoon, the first migrants arrived on the outskirts of Guadalajara, and buses took them to an auditorium where they would sleep for the night.

Over the weekend, the central state of Queretaro reported 6,531 migrants moving through the state.

Their day began with dedicated Mexico City metro trains whisking them to the outskirts of the capital.

"Let's go, let's go!" shouted Eddy Rivera, 37, a Honduran migrant who said he couldn't take staying in the camp any longer. "We are all sick, from the humidity and the cold", said Rivera, who left behind four children and a wife in Honduras.

"Illegal aliens will no longer get a free pass into our country by lodging meritless claims in seeking asylum", he said.

Caravan departs Mexico City for Tijuana as the White House moves to require asylum-seekers to enter through official ports of entry; William La Jeunesse reports from alongside the group. That caravan steadily dwindled to only about 200 people by the time it reached the border.

"Now the route is less complicated", Martinez said.

"The distance between cities is longer" than it was at the start, Rodriguez noted", but thanks to the people of Mexico, we haven't suffered".

Thousands of Central American migrants set up tents and strung tarps at a stadium in the central Mexican city of Queretaro, where they arrived Saturday afternoon after departing the country's capital at dawn on their long trek to the US border.

The US has deployed 5,200 troops to help border protection thwart what Donald Trump has described as an impending migrant "invasion".

Mexico has offered refuge, asylum or work visas, and its government said 2,697 temporary visas had been issued to individuals and families to cover them during the 45-day application process for more permanent status.

But many want to continue on toward the United States.

Many migrants say they are fleeing rampant poverty, gang violence and political instability primarily in the Central American countries of Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua, and they have now been on the road for weeks.

Those distances will get longer the farther they travel into northern Mexico, where towns of any size are often 250 miles (400 kilometers) apart.

The U.N. human rights agency said its office in Mexico had filed a report with prosecutors in the central state of Puebla about two buses that migrants boarded in the last leg of the trip to Mexico City early this week, and whose whereabouts are not known. By Friday, the migrants said they were so angry at the U.N.'s lack of help that they no longer wanted United Nations observers with the caravan.
