Trump administration prepares to send asylum seekers from other countries to Honduras

The U.S. is preparing to send asylum seekers to Honduras who are not from the Central American country, effectively ending their chances of seeking asylum in the United States, according to documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times.

Under an agreement signed in New York on Sept. 25 by Kevin McAleenan, at the time the secretary of Homeland Security, and Honduras’ foreign minister, María Dolores Agüero, adults and families seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border could be sent to Honduras without the opportunity of seeking asylum in the U.S.

A source provided a copy of the agreement to the Los Angeles Times. A spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Monday
