One other person found out today by accident. Cholusat Sur and Radio Globo are reporting that Adolfo Facussé, the head of the National Association of Industries (ANDI), a powerful business group thought to have helped finance the coup, was taken off his flight as he arrived in Miami today and held by the ICE agents, and will reportedly be deported back to Honduras tomorrow.
These same sources say that 170 more visa cancellations will be announced tomorrow.
The European Union issued an "advisory" to the Micheletti government that if things didn't change, they could expect further isolation by the EU. Among the measures mentioned was a limitation of government level contacts, to freeze all aid, and to suspend the negotiations for unified commercial relations between Central America and the EU.
