    The UN's refugee agency is urging the United States to ensure people escaping violence or persecution are given protection under international law.

    It follows a new order from President Donald Trump barring people who enter the US illegally from claiming asylum.

    His move is aimed at thousands of people from Central America, currently making their way to the US border.
