Dozens protest migrant's death on US-Mexico border

TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) — Dozens of people rallied on the California-Mexico border Thursday to protest the death of a migrant after a U.S. immigration officer shot him with a stun gun.

About 100 people stood on both sides of the San Ysidro crossing between San Diego and Tijuana shouting "justice for Anastacio!" They also observed a minute of silence in his memory.

Mexican migrant Anastacio Hernandez was shocked with a stun gun fired by a Customs and Border Protection agent last week at the same crossing.

A U.S. coroner has ruled the death a homicide.

The Mexican government said in a statement Thursday that it will use "all diplomatic resources available" to bring justice in the case.
