Mi­grants eye change at home

Stamford Advocate - - Obituaries / News -

The mi­grants in a car­a­van used by Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump as a cam­paign is­sue were al­most uni­ver­sally un­aware of the re­sults of the U.S. midterm elec­tions.

The Cen­tral Amer­i­cans were more con­cerned with the dan­gers of north­ern Mex­ico as they strug­gled to reach the U.S. bor­der, still hun­dreds of miles away, than with who con­trols the U.S. Se­nate and House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

Ke­nia Jo­hana Her­nan­dez, a 26-year Hon­duran farm­worker, left her coun­try with her 2-year-old daugh­ter be­cause she couldn’t af­ford child care or school­ing. Asked if her de­ci­sion to em­i­grate had any­thing to do with the U.S. elec­tions, the an­swer was a sim­ple, “No.”
