Migrant caravan Slides up, Mexico calls in U.S. ambassador

The immediate trouble is a lack of transportation to get the group to the next stop, the city of Puebla en route to the Mexican capital.

"President Trump: If you wish to reach agreements with Mexico, we stand ready, as we have proved until now, always willing to engage in a dialogue, acting in earnestness, in good faith and in a constructive spirit", Nieto said as he addressed from the presidential palace in Mexico City.

Santiago: One of the organizers told me he didn't expect to get such attention, but added that [the caravan is] meeting the goal of raising awareness of the conditions many are fleeing in Central America.

The caravan, under pressure from Mexico, is ending next week in Mexico City. By Thursday morning, migrants were boarding buses to leave the town of Matias Romero in the southern state of Oaxaca, where their journey had been held up at the weekend.

The Zelaya siblings, from El Salvador, huddle together, part of a caravan of Central American migrants traveling in Mexico. So we have to change our laws.

Organizer Irineo Mujica said, "We will try to find a better way of doing our caravans" in coming years. But the logistics remain fluid.

Mujica, the director of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, a migrants' rights group, said he never meant to bumrush illegal immigrants over the border.

Late Tuesday, Mexican foreign minister Luis Videgaray tweeted that the caravan had "disbanded".

Key events in rapid escalation of US-China trade dispute
The proposal is in retaliation for China's announcement of tariffs on US products like soybeans, beef, pork, and some airplanes. Financial markets, unsettled for days by the trade fight and Trump's management of it, whipsawed again on the new threat.

The "Stations of the Cross" caravan is a journey undertaken annually. Mujica said that "a minimum of 80 percent" of the migrants in the group are from Honduras.

He was referencing a group of largely central Americans making their way across Mexico, some with the intent of seeking asylum in the United States. In fact, he said, numerous migrants hoping to reach the border planned to ask for asylum - not sneak over illegally. "And now they're beating us economically, they are not our friend believe me", he said at the time.

The group has been stalled in southern Mexico for days as Trump repeatedly claimed that "thousands" were marching north and aiming to enter the USA illegally.

So, during the afternoon hours, the USA president threatened his Latin American neighbor with ending the negotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement.

On Wednesday, Trump repeated his calls for tighter border controls.

"The president was clear that this caravan needed to be stopped before it arrived at our southern border, and his efforts now appear to be successful", Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement released by the Justice Department.

Misael Bonilla, 31, carried his three children's birth certificates and a printed photograph of his slain brother-in-law that he hoped would be enough to allow his family to apply for asylum in the United States.
