u.s. border patrol
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.
Three Border Patrol agents answered pointed questions about their work during a near two-hour session last week with a delegation from the Presbyterian Mission Agency.
One day after hearing last week about the border experiences of three Border Patrol agents, the Presbyterian Mission Agency delegation learning about issues along the U.S.-Mexican border and in Guatemala heard a different take from the Moderator of the 1992 General Assembly.
