AFSC joins call for investigation into the death of Anastasio Rojas

This week marks the second anniversary of the death of Anastasio Hernandez Rojas. He was a long-time border resident who was beaten and killed by Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents at a U.S.-Mexico border crossing.

AFSC was the first organization to assist his relatives, consoling them and lifting up the humanity of that tragedy just a few hours after the incident occurred.          

NPR: Border Agent Accused of Hiding Illegal immigrants

A U.S. Border Patrol agent in San Diego has been arrested for hiding his undocumented father and other people in the U.S. illegally. Authorities took Marcos Gerardo Manzano Jr. into custody earlier this week. They've charged him with harboring illegal immigrants at his home and lying to federal investigators, who had asked him about his whereabouts. AFSC's Christian Ramirez weighs in.
