And before Trump credited Mexico's "strong immigration laws" for dispersing much of the migrant group on Thursday, earlier this week he warned that he would "stop their cash cow, NAFTA", if the country doesn't reduce the flow of immigrants coming across the southern USA border.

In both operations, about 30,000 members of the National Guard were deployed along the border with similar aims. Although his administration has at times cited a "Trump effect" for what it said was a dip in border crossings, the number of migrants trying to illegally cross into the US at the Mexico border spiked dramatically in March, according to figures released by US Customs and Border Protection.

"This anti-Mexican policy has worked politically because unfortunately there are conservative sectors in the United States with little information and he knows how to awaken an anti-Mexican sentiment, what's called xenophobia, which can be like racism, hatred of foreigners", Lopez Obrador said.

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.

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.

Men take bucket showers in the early morning at a sports center, where Central American migrants traveling with the annual "Stations of the Cross" caravan have been camped out, in Matias Romero, Oaxaca State, Mexico, Wednesday, April 4, 2018.

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. The government said it deported some 400 people and would offer refugee status to others. For the organizers, the multitude guaranteed more attention to the plight of the migrants, many of whom were fleeing hardship and violence.
