Vigil for Justice for Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez


    “The regular monthly vigil for Jose Antonio on the 10th of every month, but coming after the acquittal of Border Patrol agent Lonnie Swartz on murder charges, and before the May 11 hearing to see if Swartz will face manslaugher charges. Come support the Elena Rodriguez family in their struggle for justice that started Oct. 10, 2012.”
