Fusion’s investigative correspondent Mariana Van Zeller joined Jorge Ramos to discuss the recent updates in the case of Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez, who was allegedly shot in the back at least 10 times by Customs and Border Protection (CPB) agents as he walked down the street in Nogales, Sonora in October 2012.
In July of last year, the ACLU and the lawyers representing Jose Antonio’s family filed a federal lawsuit against the U.S. Border Patrol agents in the case. The lawsuit charged the agents of civil rights violations and the wrongful death of the 16-year-old Mexican boy. The accused agent, Lonnie Swartz, filed a motion to dismiss the case. But last week his motion was officially denied, and the case will now move forward.
