The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Hernandez v. Mesa, a case on whether constitutional protections can extend past U.S. boundaries. More specifically, at issue was whether the family of a a 15-year-old unarmed boy on the Mexican side of the border can sue a U.S. Border Patrol agent for shooting and killing him. The shooting took place in a concrete culvert that separates El Paso, Texas, and Juarez, Mexico, with the boy on the Mexican side of the border and the agent on the U.S. side.

On June 26, the court sent the case back to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider. close
