The death of Anastasio Hernandez Rojas: Tortured on the border

As Anastasio died in the hospital in 2010, the border police claimed he had resisted them violently at the border, and they were forced to taser him. However, his family discovered obvious marks of beatings and abuse on his body.

Now, two years later, audio and video tapes have surfaced of this immigrant worker pleading for his life as a swarm of border police brutalized him. Brace yourself.

It is infuriating and horrifying. This a murder by official brutality that is impossible to justify, or forgive.

Dig in.

    I only learned of this last night and it haunts me. I signed a petition on presente.org but there has to be something more we can do. I am so ashamed of my country. We tell ourselves and the whole world how great we are and yet see the evil we are capable of using against others. It makes me sick. Please tell us how we can help.
