President Donald Trump arrives in El Centro, California, on April 5, 2019, to visit the border in Calexico, California.

President Donald Trump visits the U.S. border on Friday, in part to view an ongoing border fence project near the Arizona and California state line.

The U.S. says it's out of room at detention centers along parts of the Mexican border and has now started releasing migrants right in border cities like Yuma.

Michel Marizco spoke to KJZZ's The Show about the latest developments and the volume of asylum seekers.
