REPORT: Honduran migrants consider countries other than U.S.


Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigrants has affected Honduran migrants who are reconsidering the risks of entering the U.S. illegally.

According to a report from the Center for Immigration Studies, many are opting to stay in Mexico instead, even at the risk of being deported back to Honduras.

Sally Valladares, the coordinator of the Honduran Observatory of International Migration (OMIH), stated:

“Since March, the Honduran Ministry of Foreign Affairs registered the return of 12,566 Hondurans. Of those registered, 5,771 were deported from the United States and 6,787 from Mexico.”

In light of this information, Valladares expects that more Hondurans will migrate to Costa Rica, Canada, and Spain.

Honduran migrants often fall victim to “coyotes” who take their money and belongings and abandon them at Mexico’s northern border. Instead of facing this danger, more of them are returning to Honduras.
