Mexico Senate rebukes Trump over border deployment plans

Central American migrants arrive to a sports center during the annual Migrant Stations of the Cross caravan or

For several years, migrants have traveled north in caravans through Mexico around this time of year, to protect themselves from crime and to highlight the plight of those fleeing Central America to escape poverty and danger.

Buzzfeed started the media frenzy over the marchers when it posted an article on March 31 titled "A Huge Caravan Of Central Americans Is Headed For The US, And No One In Mexico Dares To Stop Them", except ... someone dared. "But to my son, if we go back. they'll kill him".

But Mexico is hardly laughing, experts told Newsweek.

The Republican president vowed to send the U.S. military to secure the border and threatened to axe the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) if Mexico did not stop the caravan.

"The attitude of militarization seems to us like just one more insult that we Mexicans don't deserve", said Ramon Galindo, the state government representative in Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso, Texas. "You can very easily run into immigration and they'll ask for identification", he said.

President Donald Trump, speaking at a roundtable on tax cuts in West Virginia on Thursday, tossed away his prepared remarks before saying that migrant women and girls coming to the U.S.

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. Since then, illegal border crossings have fallen, with arrests for those crossings hitting a 46-year low. "So we have to change our laws", said Trump at the event. "Some people in Mexico called her the 'Hillary wannabe, ' and it is believed she will play more of a spoiler role".

Since peaking at around 1,500 people, the caravan has dwindled under pressure from Mr Trump and the Mexican immigration authorities, which vowed to separate those migrants with a right to stay in Mexico from those who did not. When the caravan arrives at the United States southern border, some will request political asylum, some will stay in Mexico and others will simply fade into the shadows.

"The last numbers we had was more than 600,000 people registered to vote in the United States". "In terms of a political hook, it's very useful to the president".

"Five migrants who were part of the caravan arrived here this week, but they're already gone", he said.

"The biggest flaw in Trump's thinking is that there is nothing illegal or improper about people in fear for their lives asking for protection", Adam Isacson, the director for defense oversight at the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA), told Newsweek.

The Mexican leader took a measured tone in his remarks, spoken in front of a Mexican flag, listing the ways his country has worked with the US, including with Trump, to "modernize" NAFTA and stop transnational criminal gangs and other things.
