Migrants bathed in the river Saturday as some took their chances at crossing illegally on makeshift rafts.

Others hoped officials would have of heart.

As the group bedded down Friday, US President Donald Trump touted his tough immigration stance to energize Republicans ahead of the midterms. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) US PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: "You know the people come up and you listen to the fake news back there and you think their all (booo) You think they're all wonderful people, no I am serious.

You think you got some wonderful people, you got some bad people in those groups, you got some tough people in those groups, and I'll tell you what this country doesn't want them." Trump has pressured the Mexican government to stop the migrants before they reach the U.S. Mexican officials vowed to tackle the caravan, and Honduras and Guatemala said late on Friday they were mobilizing to return Honduran migrants to their homeland.
