healing our borders prayer vigil
On Feb. 19 in a remote, mountainous area of the desert 30 miles northeast of Douglas, Arizona, 31-year-old Carmelo Cruz Marcos was shot and killed by a U.S. Border Patrol agent who was trying to arrest him.
Every Tuesday since December 10, 2000, a group gathers in Agua Prieta, Mexico, just across from Douglas, Arizona, to remember those who have died trying to enter the United States.
On Tuesday evening, the Healing Our Borders Prayer Vigil, held weekly just north of the Arizona/Mexico border, occurred for the 1,040th time.
