The U.S. Supreme Court said on Monday that it will take up a transgender Guatemalan woman’s bid to avoid being deported after a U.S. immigration board said she did not prove that she would face persecution if she returned to her home country. The court granted Leon Santos-Zacaria’s petition for review, which presents two technical but important questions about the process immigrants must follow to appeal rulings ordering their deportation. Benjamin Osorio, a lawyer for Santos, said he was pleased that the Supreme Court had taken up the case.
