Those migrants clashed with Mexican authorities determined not to let the caravan grow or be repeated.The new group, whose members called themselves a second caravan, gathered on the global bridge leading from Tecun Uman to Mexico.
Kevin McAleenan, the US commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, estimated on Monday that the caravan was comprised of about 3,500 migrants.
The announcement comes just days after President Trump declared the migrant caravan making its way to the US a "National Emergency".
Worn down from long miles of walking and frustrated by the caravan's slow progress, some migrants have been dropping out and returning home or applying for protected status in Mexico.
His warning comes as the United States military is reportedly preparing to send 5,000 troops to the border, a significant increase over the initial estimates of 800 reported last week.
The top US general overseeing a deployment of more than 5,200 troops to the border with Mexico said on Tuesday that troop levels would rise further but declined to say how high or estimate what the operation will cost.
That's in addition to the more than 2,000 members of the National Guard already helping at the border now. "This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!"
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Friday offered temporary work permits, medical care and other benefits to migrants if they agree to register with authorities and remain in the Mexican states of Chiapas and Oaxaca, far from the USA border.

On Monday morning, he tweeted: "Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border".
Trump denied his focus on the caravan is meant to help Republicans in next week's midterms, saying, "This has nothing to do with elections".
Trump says that the USA was "going to be prepared" and that the migrants are "not coming into our country". The troops expected to be sent to the border will primarily consist of military police and engineers, but the military also reportedly plans to send Marines.
