Friday News Dump: Border Patrol Lied About Death Of Teen, And Other News

Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez, a 16-year-old from Guatemala, arrived in the United States six days earlier.

These atrocities are done in our name. Don't let your silence be acquiescence. Call your congress members and senators and speak out. He was just a kid, 16 years old. He should have had his entire life ahead of him.

Editor's note: Posting the video of his death was wrong without the consent of his grieving parents, and it's been removed. Apologies to Carlos's family.



One week closer to impeachment! Have a great weekend!
