Trump's Easter rant against immigrants and Mexico was beyond the pale

"On April 1st, the U.S. President opportunistically invoked refugee caravans as a pretext for threatening immigrants already in the country, specifically DACA recipients, with a so-called "Nuclear Option" to remove their protections from detention and deportation", People Without Borders said.

Mexico increased its immigration enforcement in 2014, when it enacted a "Southern Border Plan" in response to a flood of unaccompanied Central American children who were transiting the country and arriving in the United States.

Mexican Senator Angelica de la Pena, who presides over the Senate's Human Rights Commission, told Reuters that Mexico should protect migrants' rights despite the pressure from Mr Trump.

During his meeting with world leaders from the Baltic states of Europe, President Donald Trump ended up rambling today about Mexico and illegal immigrants - and he ended up announcing he would be seeking to secure the border with the US military.

The organizers, a group that assists migrants and refugees called Pueblo Sin Fronteras, said it hoped the march would draw attention to the issues of the right to seek asylum and the right to seek refuge.

"They've been helping us, in part to speed the massive group out of their jurisdictions".

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

Individuals often try to reach the USA border but usually not as part of caravans, which typically do not proceed much farther north than the Gulf coast state of Veracruz.

Mexico has been aggressive in deporting illegal immigrants from Central America in recent years, a fact Trump noted Tuesday in a tweet praising Mexico's "very strong" border laws.

On Monday, Mexican immigration officials began taking the names of people interested in filing for temporary transit or humanitarian visas in Mexico. How is NAFTA a cash cow for Mexico when it has led to millions of Mexicans losing their subsistence farming livelihoods as cheaper US -taxpayer subsidized corn flooded the Mexican market?

"It is not this government's responsibility to make immigration decisions for the United States or any other country, so it will be up to the appropriate authorities of the United States to decide whether to authorise the entry of the caravan participants to USA territory", the statement said.

A statement from Mexico's Interior Ministry said Monday that "under no circumstances does the government of Mexico promote irregular migration".

"We will act with complete sovereignty in enforcing our laws", he said Monday. A large number of participants are from Honduras, where organized crime fuels widespread violence and protesters recently took to the streets after a contested election.

"What we have seen ... is when the caravan is followed in the media, the authorities keep their distance", said Alberto Xicotencatl, director of the diocesan migrant shelter in the northern city of Saltillo. "We're not against the caravan", said Xicotencatl.

Some members of Congress said they were uncomfortable with the idea of using the military at the border. Trump spoke about renegotiating NAFTA and building a border wall that would produce solar power during the rally. In a series of tweets over the weekend, Trump threatened to use ongoing NAFTA negotiations to punish Mexico for what he said was inaction on illegal immigration.
