Shooting Puts Pressure on Fox

For many Mexicans, the shooting was especially galling because it came just weeks after the U.S. House of Representatives voted for the construction of 700 miles of fencing along the border.

Hundreds of people die every year after crossing the border illegally; most succumb to the rigors of crossing the desert with little food or water.
There was an interesting article in the LATimes about a shooting by a Border Patrol agent who shot and killed a Mexican national. The article discussed the deaths on the U.S. border;

"In the last three years, Mexican Sen. Raymundo Cardenas said, "more Mexicans have died [crossing the U.S. border] than Germans died during the entire existence of the Berlin Wall."
