    Guatemala's President Jimmy Morales is facing backlash over an immigration deal he signed with Washington.

    The agreement forces Central American migrants to apply for asylum there instead of in the United States.

    Hundreds protested against the deal over the weekend.

    And now, Guatemala's human rights prosecutor is asking the country's constitutional court to scrap the deal.

    Al Jazeera's David Mercer reports.
