The vast majority of undocumented Central Americans passing through Mexico are young first-timers, fleeing violence, unemployment and impoverished conditions in their home countries. But stories of seeking to reclaim a life in the shadows of U.S. law are not uncommon.
"I lived in Florida for five years," said Sebastian Ponce, 35, a native of Honduras who was deported from the United States in February.
"I was sending home about $250 a month. Now I'm going back to make more money," Mr. Ponce said. "In Honduras, there's no work and if you can find it, it pays only about $10 a day."
