laughing to not cry

Latinos are poking fun at the uncertainty many face in the new United States of Trump.

Translation: "That natural look so they don't confuse you with an illegal"

Translation: "What Trump doesn't know is that we're already building a Troyan Piñata to cross that wall..."

Financial remittances from family members living either legally or illegally in the United States are a vital economic lifeline for family members many immigrants leave behind. In the case of Honduras, for example, remittances from abroad represent nearly 20% of the country's GNP. This yearly inflow of hard currency (US$3.7 billion in 2015 according to the above chart) boosts the country's economy, creates local jobs, and greatly aids in social stability (resulting in fewer people finding themselves with the desperate need to leave in order to seek better opportunities in North America).
