Nicaraguan Journalist Avoids Deportation from the USA

"Journalist Joselin Montes, originally from Chinandega, was released on Friday, February 23 in the United States after an immigration judge rejected the authorities’ request to deport her and send her back to Nicaragua. It was demonstrated the “reasonable fear” that, upon her return to the country, she would be subjected to unjust imprisonment, isolation, and torture. In an interview with Esta Semana, the journalist recounts why the dictatorship targeted her; the journey that took her to Panama, Colombia, and finally to the United States, where she faced the real risk of deportation as she had a previous immigration process."
