Thousands of Central American migrants trying to get to the United States stood off against local police at Mexico’s southern border and begged for food and shelter – as President Donald Trump ragged on Democrats for being ‘obstructionist’ with immigration laws.

The president took to his Twitter on Saturday morning to blast Democrats for not working to get proper immigration laws, which he claimed could be finalized in an hour.

‘If the Democrats would stop being obstructionists and come together, we could write up and agree to new immigration laws in less than one hour,’ he claimed.

‘Look at the needless pain and suffering that they are causing. Look at the horrors taking place on the Border. Chuck & Nancy, call me!

On Friday, members of the caravan of 4,000 migrants had burst through a Guatemalan border fence and rushed onto the bridge over the Suchiate River, defying Mexican authorities’ entreaties for an orderly crossing and U.S. President Donald Trump’s threats of retaliation.

But they were met by a wall of police with riot shields on the Mexican side of the bridge. About 50 managed to push their way through before officers unleashed pepper spray and the rest retreated, joining the sea of humanity on the bridge.

Police and immigration agents began letting small groups of 10, 20 or 30 people through the gates if they wanted to apply for refugee status. Once they file a claim, they can go to a shelter to spend the night.

As night fell on the bridge, the migrants’ frustration turned to despair as women clutching small children took up the rows in front of the gate pleading with the Mexican federal police. Some migrants yelled ‘We are hungry!’ Others wailed that they had children while others set up tarps to prepare for the night sleeping on the increasingly dirty and befouled bridge.

‘Please, it is night. Let us pass,’ Alba Luz Giron Ramirez, a former shop employee and mother of three, pleaded to the officers.

Giron said they had come from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, and that gangs had killed her brother and threatened her.
