Editor’s note: When was the last time the U.S. government formally complained about the murder, rape, and robbery committed by illegal aliens in this country?
Mexico has sent a formal complaint to Washington over the fatal shooting of a teenager by a U.S. border patrol agent and is pressing for answers on the incident, Mexico’s foreign minister said.
Grieving relatives wept at a funeral wake on Wednesday over the body of Sergio Hernandez, shot on the Mexican side of the border in the frontier city of Ciudad Juarez as he and other youths were running from U.S. border patrol agents.
The death of the teenager has sparked outrage in Mexico, where many already bristle at the way Mexican immigrants doing menial jobs are treated in the United States.
“We have sent diplomatic letters of complaint to the U.S. federal government insisting on an exhaustive investigation,” Foreign Minister Patricia Espinosa told a news conference.
“We are using all the resources available to us.”
