Map of Honduras with rates of poverty and homicide

Opinion: Honduras pays the price for being a captured state

Homicide levels in Honduras are some of the highest in the world. The country is also one of the poorest in the region. Solving these problems seems a distant prospect, however, as the current president and his coterie are enmeshed in the corruption and drug-trafficking that cause them. With the Trump administration counting the Honduran government as an ally in its fight against illegal immigration, there is little prospect for change.
