Mexican president slams Trump over border plan

In separate messages, the candidates Ricardo Anaya, Jose Antonio Meade and Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador called for national unity and condemned the deployment of USA troops along the border. We do not accept the use of force, the militarization of the border, problems are not solved like that, said Lopez Obrador in Coahuila, where he presided over several vote-catching rallies.

"In all communications on the topic, the Mexican government has informed the USA government that if the planned deployment of the National Guard results in the militarization of the border, it would seriously damage the bilateral relationship", the ministry said in a statement.

Similar statements were made in the Senate, whose plenary unanimously approved a declaration that also demands that the government of President Enrique Peña Nieto end the relations of cooperation with Washington in migration matters.

Mr. Pena Nieto said Mexico stands ready to engage with the U.S.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Wednesday cited a historic uptick in border crossings in spring months like April and advertising from smuggling groups as reasons for the move, calling it in part "anticipating".

Trump's series of comments this week directed at Mexico have thrust the countries' relationship into the center of the presidential campaign, where the ruling party is trailing. "We will only act in the best interest of Mexicans", the Mexican leader said.

The front-runner in the Mexican presidency, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, weighed in on the issue in a tweet.

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.

The caravan of migrants originally numbered around 1,500.

The migrants had been camped out at a sports field in southern Oaxaca since the weekend. And it ignored how many of those who did intend to come here would probably go through the legal process of requesting asylum at a border checkpoint - something miles of new wall and battalions of additional border patrol would not have stopped.

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