Human Rights Watch says at least 200 Salvadoran asylum seekers were either killed, raped or tortured after being deported from the United States back to El Salvador. In the shocking new report, Human Rights Watch found 138 people deported to El Salvador were murdered by gang members, police, soldiers, U.S.-trained death squads or ex-partners between 2013 and 2019. The report says most of the victims were killed within two years after being deported by the same perpetrators the asylum seekers had fled from. In more immigration news, the family of a 5-year-old Guatemalan boy being held at a family detention center in Dilley, Texas, says the boy is not receiving proper medical care for what could be a traumatic brain injury. The boy’s aunt says he fractured his skull in an accident before the boy and his mother were arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement during what the family thought was a routine check-in last month.
