Tens of thousand Hondurans are massing for a million man march through Latin America heading toward the United States. This is intolerable. Among them are rapists, criminals, killers and parole violators; many have tried before but been repelled. They have destroyed their country and are hell bent on destroying ours. They’re not coming here because they fear death, they are coming for their economic well being. They will tear down our country like their brethren have torn down theirs. Honduras is one of the poorest countries in the world.
The conquistadors conquered Honduras early on in the fifth century. It was Christopher Columbus and later on his brother Bartholomew who pilfered the Mayan. It was Herman Cortes who finished the job forcing the Maya capitulated. During colonization the majority of Honduras’ indigenous population was killed or died of disease resulting in a more homogenous indigenous population compared to other colonies.
The World Bank categorizes Honduras as a low middle-income nation. The nation’s per capita income sits at around 600 US dollars making it one of the lowest in North America.
In 2010, 50% of the population were still living below the poverty line. By 2016 more than 66% was living below the poverty line. Estimates put unemployment at about 27.9%, which is more than 1.2 million Hondurans.
The proportion of the population below the age of 15 in 2010 was 36.8%, 58.9% were between 15 and 65 years old, and 4.3% were 65 years old or older.
Since 1975, emigration from Honduras has accelerated as economic migrants and political refugees sought a better life elsewhere. A majority of expatriate Hondurans live in the United States. A 2012 US State Department estimate suggested that between 800,000 and one million Hondurans lived in the United States at that time, nearly 15% of the Honduran population. The large uncertainty about numbers is because numerous Hondurans criminals having broke into our country and live in the United States without a visa. In the 2010 census in the United States, 617,392 residents identified as Hondurans, up from 217,569 in 2000.
