Mexican Government Says US National Guard At Border Won't Be Armed

Central American migrant women and children stand in line for food during the annual Migrant Stations of the Cross caravan

Caravan organizers, local officials, and other said that some of the group took a train to Veracruz, a neighboring state, but it is not if that group has dispersed.

The now-infamous caravan has not only made it to the president's Twitter feed, but it has also been prominently featured on Fox News and throughout right wing media - used to bolster calls to crack down on illegal immigration on the Southern Border.

In the statement, the Mexican government said that if the deployment results in "militarization of the border, it would seriously damage the bilateral relationship".

Speaking to reporters earlier in the week, Mr. Trump said he had pressured the Mexican government to act against the caravan, a claim that drew a firm rebuttal from the administration of President Enrique Peña Nieto, which said the caravan's halt here in Matías Romero was a decision of the organizers, not the result of domestic or global pressure.

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

And before Trump credited Mexico's "strong immigration laws" for dispersing much of the migrant group on Thursday, earlier this week he warned that he would "stop their cash cow, NAFTA", if the country doesn't reduce the flow of immigrants coming across the southern USA border. Ricardo Anaya, the second favorite in most polls, said that Trump's "hostile act" required "a quick and energetic answer".

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.

Leftist front-runner Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of the National Regeneration Movement (MORENA) gestures while addressing supporters during a campaign rally in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico April 5, 2018.

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. "Then every migrant will be informed of the legal options they have and the difficulties to get a refugee status in the United States, which could mean up to a year in a jail-like situation until everything is solved", Rodrigo Abeja, one of the caravan's organizers, told the Spanish newspaper El Pais.

"No to the militarization of the border, no to the wall".
