Even as immigration wanes, shootings continue on the U.S.-Mexico border

In recent years, studies show that net migration from Mexico to the U.S. has slowed to nearly nothing, and perhaps even reversed. Yet the border remains fraught with tension and militarism, as evinced by the fatal shooting of a Mexican man by a U.S. Border Patrol agent on Monday in the Mexican city of Nuevo Laredo.
Dangerous times along the border, as five people were killed by U.S. patrol agents last year, compared to just one death four years ago.
