Slide 11: Honduras and Others

The Immigrant Workers Union (IWU) and other  community groups hold a candlelight vigil at the Dane County Courthouse in Madison, Wisconsin, to bring attention to the plight of a Honduran family rounded up by the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency

Each year about 90,000 Hondurans try to cross the border into the U.S. illegally. And in recent years, tens of thousands of Hondurans are being captured and deported. This puts pressure on the Honduran economy, as the number of remittances decline.
