Posted By on Wed, Mar 19, 2014 at 11:00 AM

According to a press release from La Coalición de Derechos Humanos and Border Action Network, the late Carlos La Madrid's mother Guadalupe Guerrero has requested a vigil to bring attention to the tragic border events. The vigil is Friday, March 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the El Tiradito Shrine, 400 S. Main Ave.

We hope you will join on Friday,March 21 and help spread the word to the public about this event, which will commemorate the death of Carlos La Madrid. Carlos, a 20-year-old U.S. citizen, was killed by Border Patrol 3 years ago near Douglas, Arizona. Carlos was shot three times in the back. His mother, Guadalupe Guerrero, has requested this vigil to bring attention to the tragic events happening along our border. She hopes that someday there will be justice for her son and others killed senselessly on the border.
