Abogados en Miami ganaron el caso de la salvadoreña Alba Flores Quiñónez, quien fue encarcelada en una celda conocida como “hielera” cuando fue interceptada en la frontera con México y Falfurrias, Texas, por la Patrulla Fronteriza de Estados Unidos.

La salvadoreña Alba Flores Quiñónez, de 28 años de edad, se dirigía hacia Estados Unidos, sin embargo al ser detenida por las autoridades estadounidenses, Quiñónez se encontraba en condiciones de salud delicada. En lugar de ser trasladarla a un centro asistencial, Alba Flores fue encarcelada en una celda “hielera” donde sufrió un colapso.

Tras lo ocurrido, Quiñónez se enfrentó en un litigio en el que  fue defendida por los abogados de la asociación Americanos Pro Justicia Inmigrantes y del bufete Kurzban, Weinger, Tetzeli y Pratt, P.A., quienes ganaron el caso.

Quiñónez aseguró que casos como el de ella, son importantes que se den a conocer pues “no solo hay personas adultas (en las hieleras) sino también niños, porque yo lo vi”, enfatizó.

La historia de Quiñónez ha transcendido por las constantes violaciones a los derechos humanos por las autoridades fronterizas. Los mismos documentos de registro especifican que al momento de ser interceptada se le decomisaron los medicamentos que portaba para combatir sus enfermedades.

El funcionario a cargo, según cuenta Quiñónez, le dijo que “esto no es un hospital”. Un día después colapsó y fue trasladada un hospital en estado crítico de salud.

Al conocer lo ocurrido, los abogados se comunicaron con la salvadoreña para presentar un caso y demandar al gobierno en una corte federal en Nueva York, donde esta semana ganaron.

En un comunicado girado por la parte defensora especificaron que “Americanos Pro Justicia Inmigrante obtuvo una compensación monetaria sustancial de $80,000 para la Sra. Quiñónez para compensarle los daños sufridos durante su estancia en custodia de CBP”.

Actualmente, Quiñónez tiene la potestad para pedir asilo ante los tribunales donde reside, proceso que ha decidido emprender.
