Inmigrar desde Honduras, El Salvador, o Guatemala a los Estados Unidos no es una decisión fácil o feliz; es una decisión dolorosa y difícil en la que se deja atrás familia, cultura, violencia, peligro, cariño, y miedo en busca del “sueño americano” que promete una vida mejor para la persona tal vez algún día, con suerte, para su familia también.
