|A Mexican man told The Associated Press that the United States has barred him from entering the country to attend the funeral of his family members, including his son, who died in a Pennsylvania home this past week.
"Fidel" Merlos-Lopez is trying to attend the funeral services for his 10-year-old son Damien Lopez on Monday after the boy, along with his cousin, aunt and 7-month-old half-brother, died in a fire last week in the town of Shenandoah.
But U.S. Customs and Border Protection have denied Fidel Lopez entrance into the country after he was asked by immigration authorities to leave the country voluntarily in 2007 after running a red light.
