In Rio Bravo, Texas, a Border Patrol officer shot an undocumented immigrant in the head Wednesday, killing her. Video of the aftermath of the killing shows Border Patrol agents sealing off the scene and detaining at least two people. The agents claim the officer fired in self-defense after officers were attacked by “blunt objects.” An analysis by The Guardian newspaper found that Customs and Border Patrol officers were involved in nearly 100 “fatal encounters” since 2003, with the U.S. paying out more than $60 million to settle lawsuits alleging wrongful death and other illegal behavior by border guards.
