Mexico government says will ask U.N. for help with refugee applications

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Thursday that it would ask the United Nations refugee agency for help coordinating with Central American governments related to people seeking refugee status at Mexico’s southern border.

U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to deploy the military and close the southern U.S. border on Thursday as Hondurans and Salvadorans joined thousands of migrants in Guatemala hoping to travel north.
