Migrants leave caravan camp in southern Mexico

Trump renews threat to link NAFTA talks to US border security warns Mexico that US 'needs the wall&apos President Donald Trump renewed a threat to link NAFTA renegotiation to his desire to build a border wall between the U.S. and

Now, President Donald Trump has issued an executive memo that allows the use of the National Guard to support operations on the U.S. -Mexico border, a move Attorney General Jeff Sessions "fully supports".

Fearful of the risks to children among the bedraggled and exhausted knot of travelers, the organizers of the annual caravan, US-based advocacy group Pueblo Sin Fronteras, said it would end in the capital, not at the border as had been planned.

Central American migrants sleep during a pause from traveling in the caravan, on the journey to the US, at a sports field in Matias Romero, Oaxaca, Mexico April 4, 2018.

Mujica praised the Mexican government for its response to their effort.

"We can not arrive to the border with 1,000 people".

Caravan leaders said most of the group - about 80 percent - would now remain in Mexico, where authorities are working with individual migrants and families to get them temporary papers.

In a joint statement, the interior and foreign relations ministries said the migrants - mostly from the violent and tumultuous northern triangle of Central America: Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador - would be subject to "administrative procedures". Many among the convoy are expected to seek asylum from the ongoing gang violence in their country.

"It seems a little complicated, with the robberies, kidnappings, and all of that", Zelaya Gomez said. There are lots of babies. "We will act with complete sovereignty in enforcing our laws. with no pressure whatsoever from any country whatsoever", he said.

The caravan, estimated to contain more than 1,000 migrants, is part of an annual caravan that is meant to raise awareness of the struggles that immigrants making the journey from Mexico to the United States face.

Some of the migrants - mainly those traveling with children - will receive 30-day visas giving them time to apply for refugee status in Mexico.

Some migrants who awoke at the camp Wednesday said they would try their luck at requesting asylum in the United States, others in Mexico.

Carol Torres, a 26-year-old Honduran woman, told AFP she joined the caravan after her abusive husband hired gang hitmen to attack her, forcing her to leave her two children behind.

"I don't believe in the American dream, because the president over there is a son of a bitch who doesn't like immigrants", she said.

If Trump were to deploy the military, we would manifest, white dressed, thousands of Mexicans along the 3, 185 kilometres of the border with the United States, affirmed the candidate of the coalition Together We Will Do History during a campaign event in Coahuila.

Mayra Zepeda, 38, of Honduras, said that once she gets documents to cross Mexico, she and her husband will continue their journey toward the border city of Tijuana.

"If Trump is getting into a trade war with China then the heat will be off Mexico in the near term", said Dirk Schnitker, head of Latin American equities at New-York based brokerage firm Auerbach Grayson.
