U.N. Agency Says Countries Must Take Anyone Claiming to Be a Refugee

Migrants in the first large caravan, who are hoping for a payday in the United States, are demanding “safe and dignified transport” to the United States. Some are returning home, others are seeking refuge in Mexico, but there are endless streams of young men not turning back.
