U.S. Backed Honduras Coup cause today’s migrant border problem
Since the 2009 U.S. backed military coup in Honduras, extreme poverty and violence has skyrocketed in the country, forcing tens of thousands of Hondurans to flee to the U.S. with the hope of receiving political asylum. Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya speaks on the subject.
"...they could not allow socialism, modern socialism, I would say, because this is a socialism that is different than the socialism one found in Europe during the Cold War. This is a socialism that accepts capital—not capitalism, but capital. It accepts private enterprise, not control by capitalism of the state, because we understand the concept of popular sovereignty, where sovereignty resides in the people". -- President Manuel Zelaya, July 12, 2019
