“One woman fleeing with her seven-year-old daughter from violence in Honduras attempted to cross into the
U.S. and ask for asylum several times. The first few times, she was hastily returned to Nogales, Sonora. On
her final attempt, she and her daughter were kidnapped by their smuggler and held and tortured for over two
weeks until her family could pay their ransom.”
