Deported to Danger: United States Deportation Policies Expose Salvadorans to Death and Abuse Published

It took much longer than expected, but after seven years of research — the last year-and-a-half with Human Rights Watch — the heartbreaking report on harm to deportees to El Salvador is complete. Co-written with Alison Parker, Deported to Danger: United States Deportation Policies Expose Salvadorans to Death and Abuse, is available in English here: https://www.hrw.org/report/2020/02/05/deported-danger/united-states-deportation-policies-expose-salvadorans-death-and#84ffd6 and Spanish here: https://www.hrw.org/es/report/2020/02/05/deportados-al-peligro/las-politicas-de-estados-unidos-sobre-deportacion-exponen . Thank you to the best co-author, Alison, to Human Rights Watch, and to every person who took their time and often several risks to make this report possible and bring it to publication.

The report has received widespread coverage nationally and internationally, including in:
