“On several occasions, rather than transport migrants to other locations where they can access services, CBP
has simply dropped off migrants in parking lots in Yuma. Since many of these migrants have traveled
distances in the desert, they are often being abandoned with injuries, including a young man who Border
Patrol left alone at a bus station with a recently amputated foot.”
