The Latest: Trump says migrant caravan shows laws are 'weak'

Posted: Updated:

TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) - President Donald Trump says a caravan of Central American migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. shows the weakness of the nation's immigration laws.
 
Reacting to news that the group reached the U.S. border over the weekend, Trump tweeted Monday that the group is "openly defying our border."
 
He called out Democrats for supporting "sanctuary city" policies that limit local police cooperation with federal immigration authorities.
 
Trump and other members of his administration have been watching and criticizing the caravan of hundreds of Central Americans since they started journeying through Mexico a month ago.
 
The migrants tried to start applying for protection at the San Diego border crossing Sunday. But U.S. officials have said for two days that the facility is full and can't accommodate them.
