Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto (top) talks to US President Donald Trump (L) and his wife Melania Trump (R) as they attend a concert at the Elbphilharmonie philharmonic concert hall on the first day of the G20 economic summit on July 7, 2017 in Hamburg, Germany.

"All they want is a place to live in peace, where they can work without having guns pointed at them, without being forced to join a gang", said Mujica.

His statement came a day after Mr. Trump signed an order deploying the National Guard to the U.S. -Mexico border.

After the motion passed, the Mexican foreign ministry issued a statement saying it would maintain close contact with the US Homeland Security Department about its plans for the border.

On Thursday, Trump tweeted that the caravan was now "largely broken up" after Mexico had used their "strong immigration laws".

In a memorandum Wednesday authorizing National Guard troops to be sent to the border, Trump said the situation there has reached a "point of crisis" and he had no choice but to act to end what he termed lawlessness.

An organizer of the volunteer group that organized the caravan, said that migrants would keep moving, but in smaller groups according to a report Tuesday.

Stranded in Matias Romero since Sunday, some migrants began boarding buses before dawn on Thursday, headed for the central city of Puebla, where the caravan was due to make another stop before concluding its journey in Mexico City.

And they didn't just win-the University of Maryland-Baltimore County absolutely dominated Virginia, the number one overall seed. That strategy overall has paid dividends: It's the best offensive team head coach Jay Wright - now with two titles - has had.

While some in the caravan will drop out, others will continue on their own to the U.S.to apply for asylum, Alex Mensing, an organizer with the advocacy group Pueblo Sin Fronteras, told The Arizona Republic.

After Mr. Trump's criticism, Mexico scrambled to gain a handle on the caravan.

"We can not arrive to the border with 1,000 people".

Under pressure from both countries, the migrants, who were largely traveling as a group as protection against criminals, will disband in Mexico City after some of the hundreds of them requested documents to stay in Mexico.

In his tweet Thursday, Trump also said that border crossings are at a 46-year low, but said the rate was still "unacceptable".

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

The report launched a deluge of coverage in American media, prompting Trump to respond with a flurry of public denouncements of both the Mexican government and USA immigration law. "They can't go home", he said, pointing to a group of newfound friends from Honduras and El Salvador, with whom he had cooked a great Value-Added Tax of seafood soup.

At its height last week, the caravan consisted of nearly 1,500 people mostly from Central America.
