"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. President Trump has vowed to deploy USA military forces to the border with Mexico. "Stop drugs!" he tweeted.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto lashed out at his United States counterpart Donald Trump on Thursday amid growing tensions over migration and border security, saying "threatening or disrespectful attitudes" were unjustified.

The announcement comes as Mexico's government began handing out humanitarian visas to a group of Central American migrants trying to reach Mexico City.

Mr. Trump this week harshly criticized Mexican officials after a caravan of perhaps 1,500 illegal immigrants jumped Mexico's southern border and began a journey to the USA, where some planned to sneak in, and others planned to demand asylum.

Ricardo Anaya, the second-place candidate who heads a right-left coalition, backed the Senate motion at a news conference early on Thursday.

The independent presidential candidate Margarita Zavala said that it is time for unity in light of Washington's threats.

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.

The Senate also insisted on reminding President Trump that NAFTA has been of mutual benefit, underlining "the five million USA jobs derived from the Treaty and the Mexican investments for more than 52,000 million dollars in 6,500 United States companies that have employed more than 120,000 people", the report continues.

"We are convinced that, by coming to agreements as friends, partners and good neighbors, both countries will fare better than if we confront each other", Pena Nieto said.

"No to the militarization of the border, no to the wall". "I urge you to reconsider this hostile act".
