Honduras is biggest source of migration to the United States
From the Washington Post:
Honduras is now the biggest source of migration to the United States — a fact that critics blame partly on the Juan Orlando Hernández administration’s poor governance and an issue newly-elected president Xiomara Castro will now inherit. While the Biden administration is crafting policy aimed at deterring migration, the Honduran economy depends on money sent home by its citizens working in the United States. Remittances make up roughly 20 percent of the country’s GDP.
