    The U.N. special investigator on the human rights of migrants has a message for the Mexican and U.S. governments: Respect the human rights of every person on the caravan heading from Central America and consider each case individually.

    Felipe Gonzalez Morales told a news conference at U.N. headquarters in New York on Friday that "there cannot be massive collective expulsions, for instance, in violation of international law."

    Some 3,000 migrants are currently trying to enter Mexico from Guatemala and hope to get to the U.S.

    Gonzalez said that in destination countries there has been a trend toward "xenophobia" which has left many migrants fearing to go into public spaces or tribunals "for fear of being attacked or not taken seriously."
