As a debate continues to rage in the United States over whether to treat the influx of unaccompanied minors at the border as refugees or to summarily deport them, The Los Angeles Times reports that minors deported to Honduras over the last month are being killed.

A morgue director in the city Honduran city of San Pedro Sula told The Los Angeles Times that “at least five, perhaps as many as 10” children killed there since February had been deported from the United States.

“There are many youngsters who only three days after they’ve been deported are killed, shot by a firearm,” Hector Hernandez, of the San Pedro Sula morgue, told Times reporter Cindy Carcamo. “They return just to die.”
