“A Guatemalan man entered the United States near Sasabe, Sonora and  walked for four hours before being met by Border Patrol who were on motorcycles.  At first the man started to run, but when the official got closer, he stopped and put  his hands up. The agent then grabbed him and shoved him to the ground, causing  pain to his shoulder. He was then moved to Tucson. He was not given any medical  attention for his shoulder. He was instead expelled to Nogales, while he was still  experiencing pain.”
