Mexico requests UN support for possible asylum requests from the migrant caravan



Mexico announced today that it is going to request support from the UN to handle the asylum requests that may be presented by the thousands of members of the caravan of Honduran migrants who are beginning to arrive at the border of the country.

"We are going to ask the United Nations for their collaboration and support for the processing of refugee claims that may be presented by members of the caravan of Honduran migrants who are approaching the border between Mexico and Guatemala," said Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray, to the press before meeting with the Secretary General of the UN, Ant├│nio Guterres.

Videgaray, meanwhile, played down the threats of US President Donald Trump to close the southern border of the country in case the caravan continues its journey, attributing them to the "electoral" context that exists in the country.
