According to local media, quoting Gonzales' family, the young woman was travelling to the US from a small village in Guatemala to find work to pay for her education.
Her death has enraged immigrant rights organisations who say under US President Donald Trump, border agents like the CBP and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are operating with impunity and a lack of accountability in their communities.
"Congress needs to stop this madness. They have the power to put an end to these agencies targeting our communities," Cristina Jimenez, Executive Director of United We Dream, a youth-led immigrant network based in New York, said.
"We have been pointing out what these agencies have been doing but it had to get so bad before people pay attention," Jimenez told Al Jazeera.
