> Thousands of Central American migrants scrambled to leave the Mexican state of Querétaro Sunday, continuing their journey toward the United States. And undeterred by President Trump's newly signed order that blocks asylum for those who enter the country illegally. The U.S. military lining the border, warning the migrants to turn back.
>> Anybody that jumps the border fence that crosses between the ports of entry will be arrested, and they will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.>> Three civil rights groups have already filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction against Trump's order, which went into affect Saturday, saying it violates the Immigration and Nationality Act which allows anyone in the U.S. to seek asylum regardless of where they entered the country.
Politicians on Sunday, debated Trump's directive, largely along party lines.>> What the President did does not recognize what the law of the land is.>> My understanding is this executive order does things directing resources to the border. Those resources are clearly within the purview of an executive order for the President.
>> The so-called caravan of migrants, most from Honduras, now making their way to the town of Irapuato. Carrying backpacks, blankets, food, many with children in tow. They have taken trains and been helped onto buses and trucks by Mexican authorities. Most appear to be heading toward the city of Tijuana just south of San Diego, and still some 1,600 miles away.
