Quoted in Vocativ article by Sarah Kaufman and Leon Markovitz on 30 December

‘Human rights groups have criticized the U.S. government for deporting undocumented immigrants back to Central American countries where the death rates are high enough to consider the U.S.’s deportation a violation of international law, according to a recent investigation by the Guardian. Social scientist Elizabeth Kennedy at San Diego State University researched U.S. deportees. She found 45 people had been killed in El Salvador since being sent back, three in Guatemala and 35 in Honduras from January 2014 to October 2015, according to the Guardian.’
