By The Blaze. A member of a migrant caravan traveling from Honduras to the United States admitted that he was fleeing his home country due to a serious crime he committed.
Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins was interviewing some people in the caravan over the weekend when he met a man named Jose.
Jenkins asked him why he was making the arduous journey across Mexico with the slim hope of getting into the U.S., and Jose admitted that “In my country, Honduras, I got in trouble.”
Pressed on specifically what type of trouble it was, Jose told Jenkins through a translator that he committed the third-degree felony of attempted murder.
