According to the head of the International Red Cross for Central America, Mexico and Cuba, Juan Pedro Schaerer, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador lead the flow of migrants to the United States, followed by Mexico, Cuba and Haiti.
In 2015 more than 400,000 migrants came from those three countries, called the Northern Triangle of Central America. And about 200 thousand of those were returned to Mexico.
Schaerer arrived in Honduras to participate in the Regional Conference on Migration.
The official said the second largest group of immigrants comes from Mexico, followed by Cuba and Haiti, and African and Asian inhabitants.
The specialist was cautious about a possible tightening in immigration policy in the United States after the presidential election of Donald Trump, who has proposed to expel undocumented immigrants and build a wall on the Mexican border.
