Following the Journey of One Asylum Seeker From Honduras

The country is known for violence against women and the LGBTQ community.

Among those arriving at the border to request asylum are those facing violence in their home countries because of their LGBTQ status. Nancy Montoya is tracking one transgender woman's journey from Honduras, a country considered one of the most violent in the world by the United Nations. Montoya spoke to the woman, Nicol, in Mexico and followed her as she approached federal agents to ask for asylum at the port of entry in Nogales, Sonora.
