Caravans like this one are common as an attempt to raise awareness, but they exist apart from the regular flow of migrants.
Even coordinators of the caravan seemed to misunderstand the debate in the US when Trump's endorsed a "nuclear option" for pushing funding for his border wall through Congress. When the caravan arrives at the U.S. southern border, some will request political asylum, some will stay in Mexico and others will simply fade into the shadows.
"I will soon be announcing additional Department of Justice initiatives to restore legality to the southern border", Sessions said.
Before, "it was like deaf ears, nobody was listening", Mujica said, adding that migrants will be able to "exercise their rights with these documents".

"To be young, in my country, is a crime", Mr Rodriguez said. But the logistics remain fluid.
Cillizza: Trump seems to be taking some credit - along with the Mexican government - for the dispersion of the caravan?
Trump appeared to be saying that the caravan was somehow responsible for the rape of women. Mujica said that "a minimum of 80 percent" of the migrants in the group are from Honduras.More news: Jimmy Butler returning to Timberwolves lineup vs. Lakers

Organizers had originally made bold claims that they would take the 1,500-strong group of invaders to the U.S.to either demand asylum or outright evade USA law enforcement.
The hundreds of people gathered here still face daunting prospects.
The caravan itself meant to hit the US boundary. Trump's comments have turned the event into a fresh source of tension between the United States and its southern neighbors.
The woman and the boy were broken-hearted, separated from their families, he said. "If your recent statements are the result of frustration due to domestic policy issues, [due] to your laws or to your Congress, it is to them that you should turn to, not to Mexicans. We will act only in the best interest of Mexican".
White House spokesman Hogan Gidley clarified and told reporters that Trump wasn't talking about the caravan but rather about extreme victimization of those making the journey north with smugglers in general. In a barrage of tweets, he threatened to end the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to punish Mexico for not detaining immigrants, blamed Democrats for weak immigration laws, and boldly exclaimed that DACA, the program to help students and professionals brought to the USA as children, was dead.
