Humanitarian crisis at border

Ellisha Flagg, left, sister of Eric Garner, cries during a service at the Mount Sinai Center for Community Enrichment for Eric Garner, Saturday, July 19, 2014, in the Staten Island borough of New York.

Garner, who was black, was confronted by police trying to arrest him on suspicion of selling untaxed, loose cigarettes on a Staten Island sidewalk, authorities said. (AP Photo/John Minchillo)
