Anastasio Hernández Rojas, 35, died in a U.S.hospital of respiratory failure. He was reportedly attacked by Border Patrol agents near the Tijuana-San Isidro checkpoint, Univision reports.
The 35-year-old reportedly had lived in the United States for the last 20 years. Christian Ramirez, national immigration commissioner for the American Friends Service Committee, told Mexican newspaper El Universal that medical records show a heart attack was the cause of death.
Mexico's National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) condemned the alleged attack, citing media reports that Hernández Rojas was beaten by some 20 Border Patrol agents who claimed that he was resisting repatriation.
