Several hundred people from the caravan got off buses and made their way to a shelter on the Mexican side near the border to line up for food.

Walker did not go along with a request from Democrats to count all ballots with mismatched signatures. Instead, he ordered that local election officials give voters until 5pm local time on Saturday to correct the problem so that their ballots can be counted.

The 76-year-old billionaire said his decision would have little to do with other Democratic presidential prospects. He conceded that "it's much too early to tell" whether he has a legitimate chance of winning the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 and, with it, the chance to take on another New York billionaire, President Donald Trump.
