Extreme Poverty And Violent Crime Fuel Hondurans Desire To Immigrate To U.S.
SAN PEDRO SULA, HONDURAS - AUGUST 19: Families live alongside a creek in an impoverished neighborhood on August 19, 2017 in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Honduras is consistently ranked one of the poorest nations in the Western Hemisphere and has one of the highest murder rates in the world. The poverty and violence have driven immigration to the U.S. and more recently Mexico, although the numbers of U.S.-bound immigrants has dropped greatly during the first months of the Trump Presidency.
