French news agency AFP, and Yahoo published a story under the headline Mexico announces aid options for Central American migrants. It starts out with the following:
October 26, 2018 [dateline on Yahoo]
Mexico City (AFP) - Mexico on Friday announced it will offer Central American migrants medical care, education for their children and access to temporary jobs as long as they stay in two southern states.
The plan was the first broad and detailed bid to address concerns of the flood of migrants, mostly from Honduras, who -- facing deadly violence and desperation at home -- set out in caravans for the United States.
Based on the report, it seems Mexico has made generous and substantial offer of aid. Yet the major US news organizations seem not to have taken notice of it, nor have a large number of displaced persons now in Mexico. This has me wondering why.
Question: Does Mexico's offer somehow change the status or rights of the displaced persons under international law?
For example, a Honduran individual (or family) is offered humanitarian protection in Mexico (where they are physically present.) If they choose not to accept it and keep migrating, are they a forcibly displaced person under international law?
