Amelia Frank-Vitale’s research examines how Hondurans navigate life after being deported  back to neighborhoods labeled as some of the world’s most violent. Her work connects regional  immigration and security policies, organized crime, state violence, and the everyday experience  of life in and around San Pedro Sula. She has been published in Geopolitics, Journal of Latin  American and Caribbean Studies, EntreDiversidades, and Public Anthropologist. Her commentary has also appeared in The Washington Post, Fortune Magazine, NACLA Report on  the Americas, ContraCorriente, and The World Policy Journal.
