Two U.S. investigations found there were no grounds on which to charge or reprimand Mesa.
Chief Justice John Roberts led the tough questioning of Hernadez's lawyer, who seemed out of his depth in the High Court. The government said the parents' claims under the Fourth Amendment should be dismissed because its protections against unreasonable search and seizure don't apply to noncitizens outside the U.S.
Lawyers for Hernandez's family disputed that account, saying he was playing a game with other teenagers in which they would run across a culvert from the Mexican side and touch the USA border fence before dashing back. In the footage, Mesa, patrolling in the culvert on a bike, grabbed one of the boys.
From October 2010 to August 2016, Customs and Border Patrol officers reported 243 incidents of lethal force involving firearms, most along the 2,000-mile U.S. -Mexico border, according to government records cited in the Mexican government's brief.
"I am trying to see what the logic is", Roberts said, leaving little doubt that he didn't see any at all.
The primary legal issue surrounding Hernandez's death is the location in which it took place.
The right to sue "should not be extended to aliens injured overseas", the government said in its court filing. The family is seeking to sue the agent in federal court, arguing that US constitutional protections apply to Hernandez even though he wasn't in the USA when he was shot.
In a sign of how bystander videos have become increasingly significant in the prosecution of cases against police officers, Justice Sonia Sotomayor noted that she had watched a video of the shooting on YouTube. The full 5th Circuit later sided with Mesa.
Liberal justices appeared more willing to examine whether some USA rights extend to border areas where the US government exercises a certain amount of authority even beyond the border line, as it does in the culvert where Hernandez was killed.
