Presidential Candidates Call for Unity to Face Threats against Mexico

"The big Caravan of People from Honduras, now coming across Mexico and heading to our "Weak Laws" Border, had better be stopped before it gets there", he tweeted.

The main goal is not to reach the United States - though some participants have crossed the border in the past.

Arriving in Mexico with nothing, he begged for money until one day a man gave him 50 pesos (about $3), he says.

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

In what has become an annual rite, often around Easter week, hundreds of migrants, majority Hondurans, started their northward procession from the southern border city of Tapachula on March 25.

"They are saying, 'Please, spread out, we need there to be less of you, '" an activist from the group People Without Borders (Pueblo sin Fronteras) told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity because he says he has received death threats for helping the migrants. Apparently U.S. immigration law is so lame that any of the caravaners who make it to the U.S.as part of a family, and ask for refugee status, must be admitted-and probably lost forever-into the interior of the country.

Although the president has repeatedly warned about the dangers of illegal immigrants pouring over the border, the numbers have fallen.

Last month, it temporarily exempted Mexico and Canada from new and abrupt United States tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

The organized portions of the caravans usually have not gone much farther north than the Gulf coast state of Veracruz.

The statement from the Mexican senators also rails against Trump for his "baseless and offensive comments about Mexico and Mexicans".

Before, "it was like deaf ears, nobody was listening", Mujica said, adding that migrants will be able to "exercise their rights with these documents".

"On Thursday, one bus left the camp before dawn en route to the central city of Puebla, where organizers hope to hold a migrants' rights symposium".

"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. But the logistics remain fluid.

Pena Nieto and Trump have had a strained relationship ever since the New Yorker launched his campaign in 2015 with the claim that some Mexican migrants are criminals and rapists.

Trump has threatened to axe the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta), which he called Mexico's "cash cow", if the Mexican government does not stop the migrants.

Ms. Freeland and Mr. Lighthizer are trying to get together in the coming days, sources said.

"As president of all Mexicans, I agree with (their) remarks", he said.

The hundreds of people gathered here still face daunting prospects.

"How many times do we have to hear stories of United States citizens being killed by people that are here illegally before we actually do something", Judd wondered, a reference to the shooting of Kate Steinle by an immigrant who had been deported from the USA five times. And Canada is continuing to defend its system of supply management for eggs, milk and poultry against USA demands for a more open market.

After months of deadlock, negotiations have begun to move rapidly over the past four weeks, said people with knowledge of the top-secret discussions, after the United States suddenly agreed to drop some of its toughest proposals or to compromise.

Ruling party candidate Jose Antonio Meade said that "independently of our political differences, it is time for all the presidential candidates to unite in defense of the sovereignty and dignity of the nation.to reject and repudiate thus kind of measure".

"You take the risk of staying in your own country, where they are going to kill you, or you take the risk of taking this path, which is risky", Bonilla said.
