“Last week 2 unaccompanied minors were returned to Nogales, Sonora under Title 42, despite guidance that
these individuals should not be subject to expulsion. One of these minors was a 17-year-old Guatemalan girl who a Border Patrol agent accused of lying about her age. BP returned her to Mexico at 8PM, and she was
forced to stay the night outside, until she found help in the morning.”
