Kelly Gonzalez Aguilar, a 23-year-old transgender woman, fled Honduras when she was 12-years-old because of violence against her based on her transgender identity. After she traveled to the USA, US immigration authorities detained her in August 2017. She has been locked up since while she awaits the results of her asylum claim. She fears becoming infected by COVID-19 because of the inadequate measures taken by authorities to protect detainees and staff from the virus. We demand authorities release Kelly immediately on parole.
