Migrant Death Protested at Border

TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) - Dozens of people rallied on the
California-Mexico border Thursday to protest the death of a migrant
after a U.S. immigration officer shot him with a stun gun.

About 100 people stood on both sides of the San Ysidro crossing
between San Diego and Tijuana shouting "justice for Anastacio!"
They also observed a minute of silence in his memory.

Mexican migrant Anastacio Hernandez was shocked with a stun gun
fired by a Customs and Border Protection agent last week at the
same crossing.

A U.S. coroner has ruled the death a homicide.

The Mexican government said in a statement Thursday that it will
use "all diplomatic resources available" to bring justice in the
case.
