TAPANATEPEC, Mexico (AP) — The latest on the caravan of Central American migrants making their way through southern Mexico (all times local):

9:20 p.m.

A 26-year-old Honduran migrant has died of a head wound after a group of migrants clashed with Guatemalan and Mexican police on a border bridge between the two countries.

Guatemalan volunteer firefighters said they tried to treat the man Sunday but the injury apparently from a rubber bullet was too severe.

The Honduran migrants broke down the metal gates at the Guatemalan and Mexican border stations at the Suchiate River after authorities in both countries closed them. Firefighters said dozens of people were hurt.

Mexican Interior Secretary Alfonso Navarrete says his country's police were not carrying guns, not even to fire rubber bullets. He says federal police were attacked with "stones, firecrackers, glass bottles and glass bottles," and some of the aggressors were carrying firearms and gasoline bombs.

Navarrete said Mexico was in communication with Central American governments about the disturbances and "rejects the displays of violence that occurred today at the border with Guatemala."

'Everything Is on the Table': Nielsen on Response to Migrant Caravan

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen sat down with Martha MacCallum for an exclusive interview, and she had a warning for the caravan of thousands of migrants shambling toward the southern U.S. border.

President Trump has firmly stated that migrants will not be allowed to enter the country illegally, and hundreds of U.S. troops are set to make their way to the southern border to help Homeland Security and National Guard troops deal with the caravan.

To those in the Caravan, turnaround, we are not letting people into the United States illegally. Go back to your Country and if you want, apply for citizenship like millions of others are doing!

Nielsen echoed the president's words with a warning for any migrants who illegally cross the U.S. border: "You will be returned home."

She pointed out that Mexico has offered asylum to the migrants, so if they are truly fleeing violence and persecution in their home countries, they don't need to make it all the way to the U.S.

"They should be seeking refuge in Mexico," Nielsen said. "To ignore, basically, refuge and continue, in some cases, to come to the United States raises questions of what their real motives are."

She added that many of the migrants may not understand that looking for work or seeking to reunite with family members in the U.S. does not count as asylum, and they will not be able to stay in the country.

"If they come here illegally with no legitimate reason to stay, they absolutely will be apprehended and removed immediately," Nielsen said, adding that "everything is on the table" for how to deal with the caravan.

When MacCallum asked if that could include cutting aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador -- the countries many of the migrants originated from -- Nielsen reiterated that any and all measures are possible to protect America’s borders and citizens.

"This caravan cannot come to the United States. They will not be allowed in. They will not be allowed to stay."
