Migrants in a caravan that drew criticism from U.S. President Donald Trump began packing up their meager possessions and boarding buses to Mexico City and the nearby city of Puebla on Thursday.

Similar statements were made in the Senate, whose plenary unanimously approved a declaration that also demands that the government of President Enrique Peña Nieto end the relations of cooperation with Washington in migration matters.

"Trump's conduct has been permanently and systematically, not only disrespectful, but insulting, based on prejudices and misinformation and making frequent use of threats and blackmail", said Laura Rojas, head of the Mexican Senate's Foreign Relations Committee, Reuters reported.
