Illegal immigrants deported from the United States have been arriving back in Guatemala and Honduras this week in the wake of Trump's order to keep immigrant families together.
Pictures show migrants hugging as the Ramon Villeda Morales airport, in San Pedro Sula, 125 miles north of the Honduran capital Tegucigalpa, after being sent home from America.
A total of 238 Honduran citizens have been deported in the midst of a crack down by the administration.
They said they returned home with their hands, feet and waist chained.

President Trump signed an executive order this week halting the practice of separating immigrant children from their parents as part of his zero-tolerance policy for those who enter the United States illegally.
A group of 108 Guatemalan immigrants, who were deported after they tried to cross illegally into the United States, arrived at an air force base in Guatemala City.
Meanwhile dozens of women and their children, many from Honduras, Guatamala and El Salvador, arrived at a bus station following release from Customs and Border Protection in McAllen.
In all, about 9,000 immigrants traveling in family groups have been caught on the border in each of the last three months, according to federal authorities.
The Navy has developed a plan to build and operate 'temporary and austere' tent cities, including several in Alabama that would hold 25,000 people each.
The plans anticipate a request by the Department of Homeland Security, which has been implementing the Trump Administration's 'zero tolerance' immigration policy at the border

Once families and individuals are released and given a court hearing date some are brought to the Catholic Charities Humanitarian Respite Center.
After releasing them from huge Border Patrol Processing Center in McAllen, Immigration and Customs Enforcement deposits immigrants at the nearby bus station, where staff greet them.
At the center they are given the chance to rest, wash and eat and to get guidance to their next destination.
The respite center was set up by Sister Norma Pimentel, who for the last 15 years has been the executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley.
The 64-year-old first opened the shelter at the nearby Sacred Heart Catholic Church in 2014, during the surge of unaccompanied Central American children across the border.
After running out of room there it began renting space at a storefront a few blocks away.

The center is about the size of a modest daycare and the organization is hoping to raise $3 million for a permanent home in McAllen.
'We speculate that one of the reasons we're still receiving people is because they don't have the capacity to hold them,' spokeswoman Brenda Riojas, told The Atlantic.
In an abrupt U-turn on his own administration's policy, the President directed the Department of Homeland Security to detain families together so long as children are not put into danger.
'I didn't like the sight or the feeling of families being separated,' the president on Wednesday stated.
President Trump indicated that lobbying from his daughter Ivanka, who showed him pictures of the caged and kenneled children, and wife Melania had caused him to have a change in position.
