Quoted in The Guardian article by Nina Lakhani on 5 February

Lakhani, Nina. 2020. Hundreds of Salvadorans deported by US were killed or abused, report reveals. The Guardian 5 February <https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/feb/05/salvadorans-deported-us-killed-abused-report?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other&gt;.

“The United States has to have known this was happening because the cases were publicly reported and more importantly because Salvadorans make it clear in asylum applications that this is their reality. But this reality is ignored or not believed by US authorities,” said Elizabeth Kennedy, co-author of the report.

“The attack on asylum is unique in the Trump administration, which has put even more Salvadorans – and others – at risk of deportation, and made it much less likely that they are able to even present their case to get effective protection,” said Kennedy.
