President Calderon demands a thorough investigation on U.S.-Mexico border killingsJune 11th, 2010 - 1:53 am ICT by BNO News
MEXICO CITY (BNO NEWS) – Mexican President Felipe Calderon demanded a thorough, objective, fair investigation to clarify the events that resulted in the death of two Mexicans in the U.S.-Mexico border, the Presidency of Mexico announced on Thursday.
“The government of Mexico is deeply concerned about the death of two nationals at the hands of U.S. Border Patrol,” Calderon said.
Anastasio Hernandez Rojas died after receiving multiple punches and was shot with a Taser gun by agents of the U.S. Border Patrol between Tijuana and San Diego. The second Mexican killed was a teenager who received head shots by another Border Patrol agent under a bridge in Ciudad Juarez, a few meters away from the U.S. border.
“The second case concerns us specially, because it involves a minor: Sergio Adrian Hernandez, who was killed by gun shots in our own territory in Ciudad Juarez,” Calderon added.
Calderon concluded by stating that these crimes of violence against Mexicans are a result of the anti-immigrant expressions that arose after the passing of the Arizona immigration reform.
The Mexican President also requested the U.S. to establish protocols in the application of this law, in order to avoid more deaths as a result of the use of excessive force against Mexican immigrants.
