Homicides have fallen dramatically in Honduras. So why are people still fleeing?
By Kate Linthicum

With more Honduran migrants arriving at the U.S. border, the number of people requesting asylum has also risen. In fiscal years 2011 to 2016, a total of 7,350 Hondurans applied for asylum, a 166% increase compared with the five years before that, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a Syracuse University think tank that collects federal data. During that time period, 80% of asylum claims were denied.
