The U.S. State Department has banned former Honduran right-wing President Porfirio Lobo and his immediate family from traveling to the U.S. Lobo is accused of corruption and accepting bribes from drug traffickers. He rose to power in 2009 in a contested election that took place after a U.S.-backed military coup overthrew Honduras’s democratically elected leftist government that same year. Lobo was backed by the Obama administration.
