Honduran smugglers cash in on Trump victory

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

The US Embassy in Honduras has warned of an increase in the demand for Honduran "coyotes" to smuggle people into the United States, a sign that Donald Trump's electoral victory is already influencing the region's criminal dynamics.

The embassy cited recent reports of coyotes "using the results of United States presidential election as a ruse to lure Hondurans into giving them money to travel illegally to the United States."
