In Mexico, three Honduran asylum seekers died Monday after their boat capsized off the coast of Veracruz. At least four others are missing, and another four were rescued, including a 12-year-old child. This is one of the survivors.
Francisco Castañeda: “It is something sad, but just imagine. People won’t stop trying to reach the U.S., because it’s supposed to provide a better life. Don’t think things are easy in our country.”
This comes after a 36-year-old father from El Salvador and his 7-year-old son drowned in the Suchiate River as they attempted to cross into Mexico from Guatemala.
