Tens of thousands of Mexicans protested Sunday against US President Donald Trump, hitting back at his anti-Mexican rhetoric and his pledges to make their country pay for his "big, beautiful" border wall.

"The United States and Mexico are natural friends and allies, but Trump is destroying this", Garcia said.

Numerous marchers were dressed in white as a sign of unity.

Trump has said he wants to renegotiate NAFTA, calling the deal one-sided and blaming it for gutting USA manufacturing.

Mexico's Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said on Monday there has not been a rise yet in the number of deportations of Mexicans from the United States under President Donald Trump, but that consulates were receiving more anxious phone calls.

A similar meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto scheduled for January 31 was canceled by Pena Nieto after Trump said there would be no point to the meeting if Mexico was unwilling to pay for the border wall and blamed NAFTA for USA job losses.

"Trump, pay for your own wall!"

When asked why she had chose to take part in the march, a protester told Al Jazeera: "Putting it in words, there's this hate that he seems to have for us, when we've never done anything to the United States".

"Undocumented Mexican immigrants are not criminals or rapists", another sign read.

"We are sending a message to Donald Trump: No wall".

"It's grown exponentially", said Videgaray, adding that people were calling with questions, complaints and worries about the process rather than because of the number of raids.

It follows the Mexican's government warning that citizens living in the USA face a "new reality" following the sudden deportation of a Mexican woman in Arizona who had lived in the U.S. for 20 years on 9 February.
