A second migrant caravan is now heading for the American border having formed in the wake of the first group.

Around 1,000 people crossed the border from Honduras into Guatemala on Sunday, before arriving in the town of Chiquimula on Monday night, Fox reports.

They are following in the path of a much-larger group, believed to number around 7,000, which has already made its way into Mexico.

It is not clear exactly when or where the second group started their march, though it is believed to be somewhere near San Pedro Sula, where the first started.

Pictures from the second group show mostly young men being confronted by police as they walked into Chiquimula on Monday night.

The group, some of whom were accompanied by young children, waved Honduran flags as they marched.

Guatemalan armed forces also arrived to keep an eye on the migrants as they passed through on their way to America.

They are around 200 miles behind the first group, with at least 1,300 miles between them and the nearest US border crossing in McAllen, Texas.

President Trump has vowed to turn away the ‘onslaught of illegal aliens’ before they reach the US, and has even floated the idea of using the Army to do so.

However, his hardline rhetoric does not appear to have deterred marchers from joining the caravans – claiming there is no life for them in Honduras because of a lack of jobs and soaring crime rates.

Trump has also threatened to cut aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador for allowing migrants to pass through.

He was initially complimentary of Mexico’s efforts to stop the migrants crossing a bridge from Guatemala into the southern state of Chiapas, though the first caravan eventually found its way around the blockade.

The President has also accused Middle Easterners of traveling with the caravans, though reporters at the scene said they had not seen evidence of this.

Associated Press reported that the caravans were largely made up of Hondurans, Guatemalans and Salvadorans.

Fox News reported that several people traveling in the caravan had already been deported from the US, but were heading back to try and get into the country again.

The president also returned to his political messaging just 15 days before the midterm congressional election, saying voters who fear the impact of a mass influx of illegal immigrants should elect more Republicans.

‘Every time you see a Caravan, or people illegally coming, or attempting to come, into our Country illegally, think of and blame the Democrats for not giving us the votes to change our pathetic Immigration Laws! Remember the Midterms! So unfair to those who come in legally,’ he said.
