Family of 'Toñito' Demands Justice in Nogales March 

From left to right, Selma Barrón, Elena Rodriguez's grandmother, Taide Elena, mother, Araceli Rodriguez protest in front of the clinic on Saturday near the U.S./Mexico border where Elena Rodriguez was killed after a Border Patrol agent opened fire on a group of people throwing rocks in Nogales, Sonora. Barrón's son, Ramses Barron Torres, was also shot shot and killed last year after allegedly climbing the border fence in eastern Nogales. “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.”
