Why Even a Live-Tweeting Senator Couldn’t Stop a Deportation
By Vivian Yee

For Central American migrants like the Honduran woman and her son, fleeing the violence and lawlessness that have driven tens of thousands of people northward through Mexico to the United States over the last several years, asylum is often claimed and rarely granted. From 2011 to 2016, immigration judges denied from 77 to 83 percent of asylum requests from people from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, the three countries that send the most Central American asylum seekers, according to data compiled by researchers at Syracuse University.
