Migrant caravan drops plan to travel to US-Mexico border

06 April 2018

Any loyal follower of President Donald Trump's Twitter feed may have noticed that he has taken up the cause of a "caravan" of migrants making its way through Mexico to the USA border.

The letter, signed by Senate President Ernesto Cordero, called on the Mexican government to suspend bilateral cooperation in immigration matters and the fight against organised crime until "Trump behaves with civility and shows respect to Mexico".

Rojas described Trump's decision as disrespectful, insulting, based on prejudices and misinformation with frequent use of threats and tricks, jeopardizing all the efforts done jointly by both nations.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has said that the Trump administration is working with four southwestern states to deploy the Guard troops, Reuters reported.

Little snow but heavy winds expected throughout Wednesday
Are we sure it's April? Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky are forecast to take the bring of the storm's wrath, DeWald said. There also is a chance of snow Sunday in the Brainerd lakes area, though it is too soon to tell how much snow is expected.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto lashed out at his United States counterpart Donald Trump on Thursday amid growing tensions over migration and border security, saying "threatening or disrespectful attitudes" were unjustified.

Leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who holds a double-digit lead in polls ahead of a July 1 vote, blasted Trump's plan to post National Guard troops along the Mexican frontier. "We must make it clear to President Trump that Mexico and the United States can continue to have a profitable relationship, of mutual benefit, or move into a confrontational relationship, where we all lose", Anaya said.

The narrative on the right this week, for example, mostly omitted that many people in the caravan planned to resettle in Mexico, not the United States.

"We will reach Puebla in different buses".

The caravan, called "the Migrant's Way of the Cross", temporarily stopped in the southern state of Oaxaca, where some of its members asked the government for transit visas.

'We do not accept the construction of a wall on our border. The statement said that the caravan has taken place each year since Y 2010, and that 400 people in the group have already been deported.

Most of the migrants joined the caravan in hope of reaching the USA and escaping from violence plaguing their own countries.
