What we are seeing here with the killing of the Mexican teen by the border patrol agent, is the dangerous and criminals implications of the recent approved anti- immigrant law in Arizona.

Why was this eyewitness walking on the Santa Fe bridge? That is a RR only bridge, there are no pedestrian lanes. Trespassing on RR property is a crime. And this eyewitness is a legal assistant? How did this eyewitness get on the bridge? It is blocked and gated to prevent pedestrians.I find the entire story hard to swallow.
