Thousands of migrants march from Mexican city and push past blockade towards US
The Metro says more than 2,000 migrants have walked to the US border from a city in southern Mexico where they have essentially been trapped.
They walked along a major road leading west and north before pushing past a line of state police who were trying to stop them.
There were minor scuffles, but the migrants, mainly from central America, continued on their way.
Police, immigration agents and National Guard have broken up smaller attempts at similar breakouts earlier this year.
