'Threats, disrespect' unjustified, Mexican president tells Trump

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

"The Caravan is largely broken up thanks to the strong immigration laws of Mexico and their willingness to use them so as not to cause a giant scene at our Border", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Trump has ordered the National Guard to be deployed along the border with Mexico.

Trump has seized on news reports that the migrant group was traveling toward the U.S. Organizers of the migrant group said they never meant to reach the U.S. border.

The Mexican government denied they had been influenced by Trump's threats of cutting aid and his decision to send the National Guard to the border, and declared the Caravan had stopped by its own choice. Another DHS report issued in September that looked at long-term trends found that border crossings have been trending downward since before Trump took office.

Lopez Obrador said crime rates in US border cities had been falling in recent years, as had the number of Mexicans seeking to cross the border.

Mexico's Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said he held talks with Kirstjen Nielsen, the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, to clarify the aim of the operation, saying that Mexico will "act in a sovereign way in defense of the nation's interest".

"Why not yesterday and tomorrow?"

But the American dream of this migrant family and others like them has been thrust under the global spotlight after President Donald Trump doubled down on his tough stance against illegal immigration, railing against those making their way from the Guatemala-Mexico border in the past two weeks. "The money that we earn is not enough for food", Espinoza said.

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.

The caravan, an annual event organized by activists to highlight the journey that migrants undertake, has typically dispersed into separate, smaller groups at some point along the journey. Still, groups are traveling the same distance and routes as they have for the last eight years.
