    US President Donald Trump says migrants who, as he put it, ''invade'' the country, should be sent home without appearing before a judge.

    Trump is maintaining his rhetoric on migration, despite a U-turn on separating children from their parents.

    The US government is now trying to reunite families separated by authorities in a remote detention centre in Texas, as Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from Los Fresnos.
