20000 in Mexico City protest Donald Trump's border policies

The marches were held by 80 organisations such as Amnesty International, the National University of Mexico and the United Mexican States Against Corruption and Impunity and were not led by any political party. Among the demonstrators were Mexican historian Enrique Krauze and the rector of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Enrique Graue.

The marchers protested Trump's plans for a border wall and increased deportations of migrants.

According to official estimates, around 20,000 people participated in protests in the country's capital of Mexico City while a march in Guadalajara, Mexico's second largest city, drew as many as 10,000 participants.

"We want bridges not walls", one protestor's sign read.

"The United States and Mexico are natural friends and allies, but Trump is destroying this". Those comments have not gone unnoticed in Mexico. The US president has often referred to Mexican immigrants as "criminals" and "rapists" who should be kept on the other side of his proposed wall. Graue said that it was time for the Mexican people to look to the future and send a message of unity and power to the United States.
