“A young Salvadoran man traveling with his sister arrived at our migrant center after being expelled under
Title 42 last week. While he was in CBP custody, a Border Patrol agent yelled at the group he was traveling
with: “Don’t move, you “M—- F—-rs.” The agent threatened that if they so much as moved, he would release
the dog to “tear them into sh–.” While detained by CBP, they did not receive any food, and were not allowed
to go to the bathroom until they repeatedly insisted. They were expelled to Nogales, Sonora at 12AM, when
the Mexican immigration office was closed and there was no one there to receive them, so they slept outside
the INM office in the cold. When they arrived at KBI, they had gone about 3 days without eating.”
