Transgender refugee denied US entry murdered in San Salvador


Aurora and her friend Paola came to the United States a year ago seeking refuge from the murderous transphobia in El Salvador. They were denied due to the Trump administrations immigration policies and sent back to the capital, San Salvador.

In the dawn, Aurora was found dead, murdered by the people she told immigration about. This short article is in memory of Aurora and in hope that one day the US can again become a true beacon of hope.
