“A young Guatemalan woman arrived in Nogales last week after fleeing domestic violence. Her partner had
beaten her and her children. When she left him, he threatened to take away her children and continued to
look for her to beat her children. When she crossed into the US to seek asylum, Border Patrol expelled her
under Title 42 without giving her access to a fear assessment.”
