The three women were standing in front of the clinic on Saturday near the U.S./Mexico border where Elena Rodriguez was killed after a U.S. Border Patrol agent opened fire on a group of people allegedly throwing rocks in Nogales, Sonora. “They’ve taken a piece of my heart. It’s where they buried him,” said Rodriguez. “No one is going to return my son to me. No one can give me back the hugs I gave him, the kisses, his voice or his smile.
