Mexican politicians unite to slam deployment of USA guardsmen

  • Trump promises'strong action on immigration today

While a handful of the migrants may attempt to cross into the US and some are planning to seek asylum, the yearly march is mostly held to raise awareness to the dangers of fleeing gang violence or political upheaval and corruption in Central American nations.

Not only that, the Mexican government is deporting migrants at record numbers.

Many of the Honduran and Salvadorian migrants were attempting to visit embassies and consulates in Mexico, hoping to be recognized as asylum seekers, organizers said. [Of Trump's move to position National Guard troops at the border], Mexico's Foreign Ministry has said: "In all of its communications on the topic, the Mexican government has stated to the U.S. government that if the announced deployment of the National Guard results in the militarization of the border, it would seriously damage the bilateral relationship".

Despite knowing the permit protected him, and that travelling alone would be faster, he feared if he left the caravan he would be exposed to the robbery and assault that befall many migrants on the long slog to the U.S. border. Or that men in Mexico are raping women in the caravan.

"Up until now, the United States and President Trump was not much of an impact".

The country's Senate passed a resolution Wednesday calling on Mexico's government to suspend cooperation with the US on illegal immigration and drug trafficking in retaliation for Trump's move.




"If your recent statements are the result of frustration due to domestic policy issues, to your laws or to your Congress, it is to them that you should turn to, not to Mexicans", he said in a five-minute, video statement issued on Twitter. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us.

Conservative U.S. media seized on this year's caravan as an example of unchecked migration, and Trump's comments brought it further attention.

Mexican immigration agents swarmed the camp in Matias Romero, roughly 400 miles southeast of Mexico City, on Monday after Trump started tweeting about the caravan.

Organizers say that migrants can now take buses on their own to Puebla, a city south of the capital, where a workshop on immigration law is planned for Friday. Anaya is the candidate of a left-right coalition in the country's July 1 presidential election. Mujica said that "a minimum of 80 percent" of the migrants in the group are from Honduras. "United States have a bad, bad president. And now they're beating us economically, they are not our friend believe me", he said at the time.

"You take the risk of staying in your own country, where they are going to kill you, or you take the risk of taking this path, which is risky", Bonilla said. More than 20 people were killed in post-election protests, and Honduras has always been a unsafe place for activists. "We will act only in the best interest of Mexican".
