United States of America: Free trans asylum seeker from detention: Alejandra

, Index number: AMR 51/8514/2018

Alejandra fled attacks and extortion based on her transgender identity in El Salvador and requested asylum in the US in November 2017. She has been detained since December at the Cibola detention centre in New Mexico, where she and other trans women complained of inadequate and unresponsive health care. US immigration authorities should immediately free Alejandra while she awaits the decision on her asylum claim.
