"Last month, Monterrosa attempted suicide after she was forced to eat in the same cafeteria as the guard she says assaulted her. She survived the attempt, but in the weeks following, she’s claimed the jail has taken punitive and inhumane steps to try to force her to change her story.

'I feel very desperate because I tried to report the abuse from ICE and facility officials, but they continue to psychologically abuse me through intimidation,' Monterrosa said in a statement last month following her attempted suicide: 'I do not feel safe or secure. I am not receiving the medical treatment or help I need.'"
