The United Nation’s Refugee Agency (UNHRC) has 45 people on the ground in Mexico helping the more than 7,000 people who are marching from Central America to the United States border with Mexico.

The Mexico News Daily reported on Tuesday:

UNHCR spokesperson Adrian Edwards told a press conference in Geneva, Switzerland today that “in any situation like this it is essential that people have the chance to request asylum and have their international protection needs properly assessed, before any decision on return/deportation is made.”

The Mexican government initially warned people coming into Mexico illegally, mostly from Honduras, that they would be detained and deported.

Can anyone please explain why were are giving the U.N. any money ?

If they really wanted to help them the UN representatives would be telling the mob to turn around and go home. Anything other than that is abetting them.

From what I have heard most of the children are 21 through 36 and male.

...and just saw where they seem to be refusing Mexico's offer to stay there. The press has described them as "desperate to escape their own countries for various economic, political, etc. reasons. Refusing the offer doesn't sound desperate.
