President Trump on Thursday said that a caravan of more than 1,000 Central Americans traveling through Mexico had been "largely broken up" by Mexican authorities - adding that it had avoided "a giant scene" at the USA border.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, in a statement personally directed to President Trump, called on the USA president Thursday to negotiate with Mexico in a constructive spirit, saying the challenges between the two neighbors "never justify threatening or disrespectful attitudes between our countries". "We're only going to work in the best interest of the Mexicans".

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

In a motion which passed the Senate floor unanimously, the lawmakers also condemned Trump's aggressive rhetoric toward Mexico, describing the president's decision this week to send troops to the border as "one more insult".

Mexican immigration officials are now offering most of the caravan migrants either a 20-day transit visa through Mexico or a 30-day humanitarian visa for those who want to apply for asylum in Mexico. What has been striking is that this year's event has the largest number of people ever, with more than 1,100.

"Despite a number of steps this administration has taken...we continue to see unacceptable levels of illegal drugs, unsafe gang activity, transnational criminal organizations and illegal immigration flow across our border", she said.
