Rights groups are warning that responses to Central American migrants, refugees going to U.S., may violate international law. Al Jazeera reports the governments of Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico in recent weeks have fortified parts of their borders, deployed police and military forces and held or returned migrants and refugees. Some of these measures violate international law or risk doing so, according to human rights groups and international agencies. These groups claim that these and other actions violate the Refugee Act of 1980.
