In immigration news, a Mexican asylum seeker died by suicide Wednesday when he slit his own throat after being denied entry into the United States at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge at the Texas-Mexico border. Meanwhile, in Louisiana, two asylum seekers from India are reportedly on the brink of death as their hunger strike against their prolonged detention stretches into its 69th day. Medical staff at the LaSalle ICE immigration jail are force-hydrating the two men. And in Arizona, the chief of the Tohono O’odham Nation says the construction of the border wall on the nation’s land may have unearthed ancient human remains inside the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in the Sonoran Desert.
