Need more evidence of the cruelty of Trump's immigration orders?

A woman from El Salvador named Sara Beltran-Hernandez, who has sought asylum since 2015 and has been detained in Texas, is suffering with a brain tumor.

After recently collapsing and being treated at a hospital, she was told she needed surgery.

But ICE agents instead transferred her back to the privately-owned Prairieland Detention Center in preparation for deportation.

She has been denied access to her family and her legal advocates (watch this video).
