(Reuters) – The United States has used excessive force against immigrants along the Mexican border and should cooperate in investigating border killings, including those of many young people, the top United Nations human rights official said on Thursday.
“There have been very many young people, teenagers, who have been killed at the border,” Navi Pillay, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, told a news conference.
“The reports reaching me are that there has been excessive use of force by the U.S. border patrols while they are enforcing the immigration laws,” she added.
