The Supreme Court also heard oral arguments Tuesday in the case of slain Mexican teenager Sergio Adrián Hernández Güereca, who was shot in the face and killed in 2010 as he played in Ciudad Juárez by a Border Patrol agent who stood across the border in El Paso, Texas. During arguments, liberal justices expressed concerns over providing no legal relief to the families of people who have been killed in cross -border shootings by U.S. agents, essentially allowing federal officers on American soil to act unlawfully with impunity. But conservative justices reportedly seemed to side with the Trump administration, with Justice Brett Kavanaugh emerging as a potential decisive vote.
