President Donald Trump said the U.S. is “full,” and can’t accommodate any more migrants from Latin America, capping a week of heated threats against Mexico over undocumented migration and the flow of illegal drugs.

“Our country is full. Our area is full. The sector is full,” Trump said at a briefing on border security in Calexico, California, on Friday. “Can’t take you anymore. I’m sorry, turn around, that’s the way it is.”
