Late last night our delegation arrived in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

This morning we started at 7:45am with a country briefing from the U.S. embassy, met with Foreign Minister Lisandro Rosales, and attended a bazaar with goods from embassy-supported programs.
I told the Honduran officials how deeply troubled I am by the culture of corruption and human rights abuses surrounding Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández.

It is important to convey these strong concerns at this critical moment in Honduras.
Next we held an emotional and powerful meeting with the mother and family of Berta Cáceres, a human rights activist who was murdered for her work to protect her indigenous land and the environment.

Justice must be done!
Berta’s family & @COPINHHonduras continue to be threatened and attacked for their search for justice and their environmental, land rights and human rights work.

We stand with Berta’s family and all the brave indigenous and human rights defenders in #Honduras!
Before departing for McAllen, Texas, we held a press conference with members of the Honduran media where I expressed deep, deep concern about the alleged culture of corruption and human rights abuse surrounding Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández.
