  • Gone in 60 seconds: Immigrants taunt Trump by climbing wall into the US despite his promises of National Guard presence and tighter security

Since peaking at around 1,500 people, the caravan has dwindled after Mexican authoritIes issued permits shielding many from imminent deportation from Mexico.

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

The caravan, which set off from Mexico's southern border on March 25, aims to raise awareness about the plight of migrants, and has been running annually since 2010, the government said.

The sheer size of the group - more than 1,000 people, swollen by Hondurans leaving their country after a contentious presidential election - has made the logistics of travel too hard, they said.

Alfredo Corchado, the Border-Mexico correspondent for The Dallas Morning News, covered the presidential campaign launch this week of one candidate in the northern states of Mexico.

After fleeing San Pedro Sula, Honduras, because of gang threats, Katerina Dominguez Enamorado, 22, had been in Tapachula, a southern Mexico town, when she joined the caravan. The state registered the highest number of homicides in Mexico in 2017, which went on record as the country's most violent year in recent history.

On Easter Sunday, Trump began his assault on the asylum-seekers following a Fox News segment about the group. In the third portion of the resolution, the Senate calls for Mexico to stop any binational cooperation with the U.S.in dealing with immigration matters and fighting transnational organized crime (cartels) until Trump "acts with civility and respect".

"Five migrants who were part of the caravan arrived here this week, but they're already gone", he said.

Similarly, our PM has created fear within the opposition, which is now teaming up to fight the BJP in the election", said Shah. Having been involved in corruption worth Rs 4.5 lakh crore, you are making this kind of a frivolous allegation against us.

Cillizza: Finish this sentence: "By focusing so much attention on the caravan, Donald Trump did _".

"Not sure why the media is acting like this isn't a well-established fact - women and young girls are brutally victimized on the journey north, strikes me as quite freakish that reporters would try to cover up the gross atrocities perpetrated by smugglers and coyotes", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement after Trump's comments.

"So we have to change our laws", he said.

Organizers say that migrants can now take buses on their own to Puebla, a city south of the capital, where a workshop on immigration law is planned for Friday.

On Wednesday, the Mexican Foreign Ministry reported that officials repatriated some 400 caravan migrants, sending them back to their native countries. "My mission is to get to the United States". At the time, he was speaking about Mexicans and said outright, "they're rapists".

"In many places the same person in California votes many times".

Trump has made the migrant caravan a central theme in tweets.

Peña Nieto's statement also comes one day after Trump ordered the secretary of Defense to deploy National Guard troops on the U.S.
