The migrants had departed before dawn from Tapachula in the southern state of Chiapas near Guatemala despite an ongoing crackdown on migration on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border.

The group, including people pushing children in strollers, proceeded on foot about 19 miles (30 km) before being apprehended on the road in Huehuetan in the afternoon.

Around 500 members of Mexico's National Guard military police in helmets and tactical vests blocked the highway on both sides, according to a Reuters witness, and some pursued migrants who fled into neighboring fields.

Officials from Mexico's national immigration institute detained most of the group, putting them on buses back to Tapachula. About 150 migrants decided to return on foot.

Operation Gatekeeper at 25: Look back at the turning point that transformed the border

  Operation Gatekeeper at 25: Look back at the turning point that transformed the border What emerged was a whole new approach to border enforcement. Operation Gatekeeper was unveiled on Oct. 1, 1994. The strategy was to deter migrants from illegally crossing in the first place — and, for those who remained undeterred, to encourage them to cross in more isolated wilderness areas to the east, where they could be more easily captured.Twenty-five years later, Operation Gatekeeper is still viewed as a major turning point in the effort to control the border.It is considered both a success and a failure, depending on whom you ask.

Activist Irineo Mujica of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, who accompanied the migrants, said only a small group opted to walk back on their own.

"The vast majority were taken to Tapachula, the caravan was dismantled," he said in a video documenting the incident.

The scene was reminiscent of a string of caravans that left Central America a year ago, at one point ballooning into a group of 7,000 people in southern Mexico.

That en masse migration drew extensive media attention and triggered a crisis with U.S. President Donald Trump, who called the caravans an "invasion" and demanded Mexico do more to halt their progress.

The Mexican government in June struck a deal with the United States vowing to significantly curb U.S.-bound migration in exchange for averting U.S. tariffs on Mexican exports.

Arrests at the U.S.-Mexico border fell in September for the fourth month in a row, after record high crossings this Spring, and the Trump administration credited cooperation from Mexico and Central American countries for the sustained drop.
