A Mexican man who climbed the border fence in Arizona has fallen and died, Homeland Security said Tuesday.
The 47-year-old man climbed the fence in Nogales on June 18. He was found on the U.S. side unconscious and with “significant injuries to his head and right arm,” Customs and Border Protection said
He had surgery to try to drain fluid from his brain but died on Sunday. According to the Washington Times, the fence in Nogales has been controversial for years, with some townspeople calling it a hindrance to cooperation.
The town council earlier this year passed a resolution telling the Trump administration to pull down the razor wire that had been put up to try and prevent border jumpers.
