President Donald Trump said Thursday that a caravan of Central Americans headed to the U.S. border from Mexico had been broken up because of Mexico's "strong immigration laws."
Trump credited Mexico's willingness to use the laws for stopping the caravan, estimated to be made up of more than 1,000 people. His comments came in an early morning tweet.
He also touted his administration's actions for keeping border crossings at a "46-year low."
The caravan had scrapped its plans to cross into the United State as Trump ordered the National Guard to deploy to the border.
The caravan leaders said most of the group would remain in Mexico.
