Photos: Deported migrants face fear and gang violence in Honduras


As wars between rival gangs continue to wreak havoc on Central America, more child and teen migrants are heading to the U.S. without their parents. According to a study released in 2014 by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, 58 percent of Central American child migrants who arrived after October 2011 fled because of violence. With the growing number of migrants, the Obama administration is ramping up deportation efforts but the migrants face a life or death choice upon returning home: join a gang or die.
