first_imgGuzal Yusupova walked back toward the Syracuse bench after a soft net handshake with Duke’s Kelly Chen. Yusupova’s eyes stared at the ground as she walked back to her bench, and she slammed her racket against the tennis bag twice before Jennifer Meredith walked over. The Orange’s top singles player had just lost her singles match in a third-set tiebreaker, 10-6. Yusupova had a chance to beat the No. 7 player in the country but eventually trailed off.Yusupova and the rest of No. 25 Orange (6-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast) lost their match, 7-0, against No. 10 Duke (9-2, 2-1) and lost 14 of 16 sets overall. Net hit after net hit, out after out and groan after groan from the crowd. After opening the season with a six-match winning streak, Syracuse has now lost two-straight — including 4-2 to Columbia last Friday.“They are a top-ten team for a reason,” Syracuse head coach Younes Limam said.The Orange already faced an uphill battle when four ranked singles opponents and a ranked doubles pairing strolled onto the Drumlins Country Club courts before the match, compared to Syracuse’s only ranked player: No. 77 Yusupova.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textYusupova started her match serving and at 30-30, a 13-hit rally ended when she dropped a shot out-of-bounds. Chen and the senior battled back-and-forth and exchanged the lead continually during that opening set. Whenever Chen’s shots went out-of-bounds and she winced at the lost point, Yusupova responded with an out-of-bounds hit of her own.Chen eventually rallied back against Yusupova to tie the first set, 1-1, and had Yusupova running from alley lane to alley lane during a 30-all point. The senior could only respond with a backhand that flew out of bounds.When Yusupova smashed a winner past Chen and pushed ahead 4-3, Chen clenched her teeth and complained to head coach Jamie Ashworth. Despite all of Chen’s frustrations, she topped Yusupova 7-5 in their opening set.That paralleled Syracuse’s other matches against the Blue Devils, who had already clinched because of victories against Syracuse’s Miranda Ramirez (6-1, 6-2), Zeynep Erman (6-1, 6-3) and Sonya Treshcheva (6-4, 6-3). The Orange couldn’t recover from a lost doubles point, something they did against St. John’s on Feb. 4 and Boston College on Feb. 15.Yusupova battled back in her second set and took advantage of Chen’s frustrations from earlier. Slices agitated Chen, and at one point Yusupova fired an ace past the Duke junior, who had no reaction.“Guzal is the biggest fighter I’ve ever seen in my life,” said Erman postgame. “She never gives up, she fights for every ball, she’s the number one.”To start the third set, Chen took the lead 3-0 after a few net hits and long balls from the SU senior. Then, it extended to 4-0 after another out-of-bounds hit from Yusupova — who hit her racket on the court in frustration. Despite three straight-points from Yusupova in the tiebreak, Chen rebuilt her lead back to four after a few long rallies, an overhead spike and a backhand winner.By that point, the rest of Syracuse had gathered alongside court three. Duke blew past each of the bottom five singles matches with ease and ensured the Orange wouldn’t beat their second ranked opponent this season. Yusupova swung her racket back and forth, awaiting Chen’s serve.“That’s it Guzal,” Kim Hansen shouted, still trying to encourage from the sidelines.But Yusupova hit one straight into the net through with her backhand, and eventually Chen’s cross-court forehand flew across while Yusupova watched aimlessly. Minutes later, the Orange clumped together for their postgame stretching circle. Duke had successfully handled both of Syracuse’s doubles matches, all five of the previous singles and even solved the Orange’s top-ranked player.“I can promise you we are going to watch more (film) this week,” Limam said.

I’ll be fine, I’ll make it.’“But she wasn’t fine, she never got to realize her dream of working in the United States,” said González.Claudia arrived in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, on the evening of 22 May 2018 – two weeks after leaving home – where she was taken to a so-called safe house full of Guatemalans waiting to cross the border to the US. From here, she phoned home; it’s a call her mother has replayed over and over in her head this past year.“She sounded happy, excited because they were going to cross that night or in the morning. She told me not to worry, that she’d soon be at her aunt’s in Atlanta, and would call me then.”Claudia crossed Rio Grande with five young men on 23 May around 11 or 11.30am, and entered a small abandoned building to wait for the next guide.The Guardian spoke to several of these youngsters, who asked not to be named in order to protect the continuing investigation. They quickly left the building and hid among some bushes further uphill after catching sight of an armed patrol agent.

Photograph: Courtesy Gonzalez family San Juan Ostuncalco is a picturesque rural sprawl of mostly indigenous Mam communities scattered amid fertile mountains outside Guatemala’s second largest city, Quetzaltenango.This region was the setting for multiple atrocities by government forces during the country’s 36-year civil war that left 200,000 civilians dead – most of them indigenous – and triggered a wave of forced migration to the US in the 1980s.More recently, those refugees have been followed by a new generation of migrants, driven from home by economic hardship, climate change, government neglect and endemic corruption. In 2018, Guatemalans living abroad sent home a record $9.2bn in remittances, accounting for 11% of the country’s GDP.Claudia Gómez graduated in 2016 with an accounting certificate, and the smart youngster hoped to continue studying but didn’t pass the tough entrance exam for a place at the country’s only public university. Then, in August 2017, her father was deported after several years working as an electrician in Atlanta. As a result, the family could not afford to send her to a private university. Keeping the family’s two younger children in school also became a struggle. | Pick Facebook Support The Guardian Guardian Pick Share Guatemala Jump to comment Guardian Pick Dear Lidia and Gilberto, my heart is broken for your loss.

Another video filmed by Martinez, but not broadcast, was handed over to federal investigators.The migrants interviewed by the Guardian denied having sticks or rocks, and said Claudia was unarmed, timid and scared.The three detained men, who met Claudia and each other at the safe house in Nuevo Laredo, spent over five months locked up in various detention centers waiting to testify.At the end of October last year, tired of incarceration, they opted to be deported home and return to testify in the US, if a criminal charge is brought against the agent. The FBI investigation remains ongoing, and agents have been in contact with the witnesses, but the family have heard nothing.The FBI did not respond to the Guardian’s request for an update on the case, nor did CBP.A Guardian investigation published three weeks before Gómez was killed found that CBP agents used deadly force on at least 97 people since 2003. Six Guatemalan children and adolescents have died trying to reach the US since Gómez died in May 2018.A year on, and her parents want answers – and justice.“We still don’t know the name of the person who killed my daughter. We don’t know if he’s in jail or still working. We don’t know why he killed her,” said González.Mr Gómez added: “We pray to god that the guilty man is sent to jail and pays for what he did.

Facebook Honestly, The US owes nothing, with all of the border disputes, drama, crap, that’s been going on, Immigrants from Cuba, Quatamala, Central-South America, Europe, Asia and wherever else, were warned about the US not accepting any refugees or immigrants, Why not place blame where it’s due? If a parent tells a child not to touch a hot stove and they touched it, who’s fault is it? the stove’s? com’n people think smart, it’s the same thing about wanting to sue McDonald’s for burning themselves with hot coffee when clearly there are warnings about hot coffee… FOR THOSE that want to complain about better lifestyles here in America, if they’re (immigrants and refugees) really want to make a difference and a change, stand up for yourselves in your own country, is that so hard, might be at first, true, but if enough momentum gets started, well look at America now. If those immigrants that are looking for a handout, for the American People, how would you feel if the government stripped your children of their education or civil rights and handed them to an undeserving immigrant or refugee that has contributed to America? collapsed 25 Facebook 23 May 2019 Share on Twitter Reply 25 May 2019 8:15 | Pick Actually, it isn’t.

The youngster who was with Claudia when she was shot was also detained.Initially, the CBP said that a lone agent fired in self-defense after a group of undocumented migrants resisted arrest and attacked him with blunt objects, describing Claudia as one of the “assailants”.But the official story changed after a live broadcast of the aftermath of the fatal incident by neighbor, Marta Martinez, went viral. In the video, filmed by Martinez on her cellphone, she is repeatedly heard asking agents why they shot a young woman. “Why did you kill that woman? You killed her!” Martinez is heard saying. “I saw you with the gun.”Two days later, CBP issued another statement, which said a 15-year veteran of the border patrol had been “allegedly assaulted” and “rushed”, and did not mention blunt objects.
