'Threats, disrespect' unjustified, Mexican president tells Trump

Mexican Senate, Candidates Slam Deployment of US Guardsmen 'Threats, disrespect' unjustified, Mexican president tells Trump

President Trump has vowed to deploy US military forces to the border with Mexico.

The White House on Tuesday said mobilizing the National Guard was part of Trump's strategy to stop illegal immigrants from entering the country, whom he blames for crime and drug trafficking.

Mexican senators have asked Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to "suspend the nation's cooperation with the United States on several issues" in response to President Trump's constant criticism and aggressiveness against the Central American country, The Hill reported.

Caravan organizers, local officials, and other said that some of the group took a train to Veracruz, a neighboring state, but it is not if that group has dispersed.

But that didn't sit well with some Mexican political forces.

In the statement, the Mexican government said that if the deployment results in "militarization of the border, it would seriously damage the bilateral relationship".

Ricardo Anaya, the second placed candidate who heads a right-left coalition, backed the Senate motion in a media conference early on Thursday.

Jose Antonio Meade, the candidate for the Institutional Revolutionary Party in the presidential election July 1, called for candidates to come together to condemn National Guard troops on the border. "There is work, you can't say there is no work but you don't earn enough to make ends meet, not even for food". "We will only act in the best interest of Mexicans", the Mexican leader said.

Independent candidate Margarita Zavala, trailing in fourth place in recent polls, on Thursday called Trump's announcement a "historic error" that would hurt the United States as much as Mexico.

The president of the senate's foreign affairs office, Laura Angelica Rojas, said that Mexico and the US are "deeply related by social and political links, as well as economic integration".

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.
