I’m Maya Srikrishnan, a border and immigration reporter at Voice of San Diego. I just returned from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, where I went to see what’s driving people there to seek refuge in the United States. Ask me Anything!
Hi Reddit. Maya Srikrishnan here. I’m a reporter at Voice of San Diego and I write about immigration and the San Diego-Tijuana border.
Last year, our border saw two large caravans of mainly Honduran asylum-seekers. I decided to go to San Pedro Sula, Honduras to see what was happening for myself and to see why so many Hondurans are leaving their country. Honduras has the highest migration rate per capita to the U.S.-Mexico border of any country.
Ask me anything about the situation in Honduras or about the San Diego-Tijuana border.
Here are some of my recent stories:
