Mexican Senate slams Trump's bid to militarize border

This time, it was not clear whether Trump's reference to "this journey coming up" suggested a record number of rapes in the highly-publicized caravan of Central American immigrants making its way north through Mexico or in migrants' trips through that country generally.

But while numerous Central Americans in the group say they intend to try to get to the United States on their own, it has been decided that the organized caravan will finish in Mexico City after a stop in the city of Puebla later this week.

In Mexico's more remote states, the federal government's go-to strategy has overlooked local criminal dynamics and how they relate to local actors like politicians and the Catholic Church, which may limit the effectiveness of the approach. He hopes to request asylum and join relatives in NY. "We will not allow negative rhetoric to define our actions", he said in a national address. "It's for the safety of our children".

Infections are easy to spread when people are traveling in buses and sleeping in packed spaces, he said.

"It seems a little complicated, with the robberies, kidnappings, and all of that", Zelaya Gomez said. Many said they were comfortable remaining in Mexico. "We didn't anticipate, or want, a caravan of this size".

"They are very scared for their family". She said her husband abused her and the gangs had killed many people in her neighborhood. Some are seeking asylum in Mexico itself. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us.

"Despite everything that is at stake in the relationship between our two countries, the way in which President Donald Trump has behaved is, for the Mexican people, unacceptable and intolerable", El Universal quoted from the document. Some of the participants have made a decision to stay in Mexico as a result.

Though the caravan is uncomfortable - the migrants cook meager, donated rations on fires and sleep under the stars - they said risks they have taken should be an indication of how unsustainable their circumstances are back home. The majority of participants are from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

Chiesa later said on Twitter that the New York State Athletic Commission determined he would not be allowed to fight on Saturday. McGregor once held the 145 and 155-pound championships at the same time and boldly stated he wanted an ownership stake in UFC .

Sitting on a thin foam pad and trying to corral her sons, 2-year-old Jonathan and 6-year-old Omar, Gabriela Hernandez wondered aloud at what Trump must think of them.

One caravan participant, Erasmo, told me he left Honduras because of threats from gangs, and nothing can stop him at the US/Mexico border, not even the US National Guard.

The caravan itself meant to hit the USA boundary. "There still isn't anything to concern our country", Lopez Obrador said.

Rangel and the criminal groups reached their truce despite the Mexican government rejecting the idea.

Migrants are not "invading" the U.S., they are fleeing violence, poverty and instability.

Last week, the president announced that National Guard soldiers would be deployed to the U.S. -Mexico border.

Also Friday, " Mexico's secretary of the inner said he'd called in U.S. Ambassador Roberta Jacobsen for consultations pertaining to Trump's announcement Thursday about migrant girls being banged on the travel to the U.S. When the caravan came together there they saw it as a good opportunity to make a move with safety in numbers.

Trump appeared to be saying that the caravan was somehow responsible for the rape of women. "We're going to have the wall".
