Migrants from Central America attacked a border crossing between Guatemala and Mexico on Saturday.
The dramatic video reveals mobs attempting to break through a line of Mexican marines along a thin bridge over the Suchiate River, which separates the nations, Reuters reported.
Mexican officials have been bracing for the group, which had moved to Guatemala from other Central American nations.

“We have been tasked with being vigilant, and if we see a large group on the other side, we will deploy a human wall on this side to contain them,” a Mexican marine told The Associated Press as he braced for the attack.
“Caravans” of migrants overwhelmed Mexican border officials in 2019, with many making it to the US border. Officials in the nation are determined to bypass repeats in 2020.
