After crossing the Suchiate River, some of the migrants making their way from Honduras to the United States began throwing rocks at Mexican National Guard troops assigned to stop the illegal border crossings, according to a report by the Associated Press. The apparent assaults came as Mexican authorities attempted to control the flow of migrants.
