In this Aug. 27, 2014 photo, a sole clown shoe belonging to Honduran migrant Jorge Ruiz Williams, 20, lies atop a freight train after it arrived at the station in Ixtepec, Mexico. Migrants who had been riding atop the train from Arriaga to Ixtepec reported that authorities staged a raid on the train in the middle of the night, arresting many migrants and sending others fleeing into the darkness. Ruiz Williams was one of the lucky handful who was able to escape the police and re-board the train. Seen later in a migrant shelter in Ixtepec, he said he had lost both shoes, but the rest of his professional clown costume was intact. (AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell)CHAHUITES, Mexico (AP) — Mexico is making a big effort to stop the flow of Central Americans trying to reach the United States, and has dramatically cut the number of child migrants. But it is unclear for how long federal officials will keep up the raids.
