EAGLE PASS, TEXAS — Immigration rights advocates demand a Department of Justice (DOJ) criminal investigation into an incident where a Texas National Guard soldier fired upon a Mexican citizen in his country's territory. This incident, last Saturday near the Rio Grande, has exacerbated tensions on an already fraught U.S.-Mexico border.
Mexican authorities and their Texas military counterparts have confirmed that the individual shot was Darwin José García, a 37-year-old native of Veracruz, Mexico. García sustained a leg injury due to the gunshot.
