The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a transgender woman from Guatemala who is challenging her deportation.

The justices unanimously backed Estrella Santos-Zacaria, who now has another chance to argue for her right to asylum as she faces persecution back home.

Santos-Zacaria fled to the U.S. after being raped as a young teenager and threatened with death because she is transgender.
