BORDER PATROL KILLING. Anastasio Hernández Rojas died in May 2010, after being brutally beaten by a number of border patrol agents, after trying to enter the United States from Mexico. The agents claimed Hernández resisted arrest and became hostile toward them. Two years later, a new PBS documentary reveals chilling video recordings of a man handcuffed and pleading for his life, as he is kicked, punched, tased and beaten repeatedly until he died. The journalist who helped bring the story to the nation's media joins this edition. Family members and experts on border violence have also been invited.
