"'This case is heart-wrenching,' said Claudia Muñoz, immigration programs director at Grassroots Leadership. 'We learned from Laura that she attempted to kill herself just after learning that she was going to be punished because she refused to eat in the same cafeteria where her abuser is now assigned. It's just inhumane to force this victim of sexual abuse to have to relive that abuse everyday by being forced to confront her abuser over and over again. Laura can't escape this pain, she can't get the treatment she needs.'"
