US-Mexico border: Migrants held as Trump threatens closure

United States officials say they're seeing an "unprecedented" surge in Central American asylum seekers arriving at the US-Mexico border.

In El Paso, Texas, US Customs and Border Protection is holding some migrants under a bridge due to what they say is a lack of space in processing facilities.

President Donald Trump has threatened to close the US border if Mexico does not do more to stop migrants reaching the United States.
