Q24N (Prensa Latina) Official statistics confirm today that Honduras received more than 4,000 nationals deported from the United States and Mexico since the beginning of this year.

According to the Center for Migrants Returned, the northern nation repatriated by air 1,738 people, of which 80 percent are men and the remaining 20 are women.

A report from the National Institute for Migration estimated at 2,332 the total of Hondurans sent from Mexico, considered the primary source of deportations.

The statistics of both entities account for 4,070 people deported from both countries so far this year.

On average, 100,000 citizens of Honduras annually leave their homeland and move northward in an increasingly perilous journey that do not always have a happy ending.

Poverty, insecurity and violence are the main reasons that push these people to migrate in search of the so-called American dream.

Many are intercepted at the borders or caught in raids in the United States and then deported, while others quit the journey due to lack of money to pay the coyotes and other costs.

However, those who run unluckiest are the victims of abuse, kidnapping, rape, robbery, murder and disappearances, crimes that are repeated every day and remain unpunished.
