59 migrants deported from US arrive in Honduras

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras (AP) — A charter flight carrying 59 women and children has arrived in Honduras from New Mexico, the second group of migrants from the Central American country to be deported from the U.S. this week.

Nun Valdete Wileman welcomed the 33 children and 26 women on Friday at San Pedro Sula’s airport’s Center for Returned Migrants.

Wileman said there is a playground for the children and a place for their parents to clean up and get ready before continuing to their hometowns by bus. Each child received a small backpack with crayons, and their mothers about $24 for travel expenses.

She said each child that arrived was accompanied by his or her mother.

About 40 Honduran migrants detained in New Mexico were deported to their home country on Monday.
