By the Time You Read This, ICE Might Have Shipped Durham Resident Wendy Miranda Fernandez Back to El Salvador—Perhaps to Her Death
By Sarah Willets

ICE says Miranda Fernandez was detained "after she received all appropriate process before the federal immigration courts." She previously applied for permanent asylum in the U.S., but that was denied, and she was issued a final order of removal in August 2016. She wasn't alone. According to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, 82.9 percent of Salvadoran asylum seekers were turned down between 2011 and 2016.
