Pressure on to open border death records

From U-T San Diego:  SAN DIEGO — The American Civil Liberties Union and local news organizations, including U-T San Diego, asked a federal judge Tuesday to reject a request to seal documents in a wrongful-death suit that alleges an unauthorized immigrant died after being beaten and shot with a Taser by Border Patrol agents.

The government and attorneys for the agents asked the judge last month to seal future filings in the case to protect agents and customs officers who were involved in the death of Anastasio Hernandez Rojas, 42. The government also said it was trying to avoid revealing any policies and procedures of Customs and Border Protection.
