I just can't tell from the picture- were they infants; or were they widows? I would have thought it looked like a 20-something year old dude, but I saw the POTUS say on the news that the refugees coming from the middle east don't include this demographic.

Things that struck me from the article:
They had traveled by air from Syria to Lebanon, then to Turkey, Brazil, Argentina, Costa Rica and on to Honduras.
Handy that they made it through 5 airports prior to Honduras while riding on bogus papers. :evil:
This year, 12,600 foreigners were detected illegally entering Honduras, almost all of them with the aim of getting to the United States, Nolasco said.

Those detained by authorities include nationals of Somalia, Iran, Ghana, Ethiopia, Senegal, Cameroon, Guinea, Sri Lanka, Eritrea, Togo, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Nepal, as well as of other Latin American countries.
Honduras - the first line of defense on America's border. :roll:
