Agents assigned to the Zapata Border Patrol Station conducted a vehicle stop on a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe on U.S. Highway 83. An immigration inspection of the occupants by agents determined that six individuals were illegally present in the United States.
During the arrest one illegal alien struck the agent several times using his fist and attempted to grab the agent’s legs in an attempt to take the agent to the ground.
Once the assaultive illegal alien was subdued, agents placed all individuals under arrest and transported them to the Zapata Border Patrol Station for processing. At the station, agents discovered the assaultive illegal alien had two felony convictions. One of the convictions was for illegal re-entry and the second for alien in possession of a firearm.
I find it a bit odd that if an American citizen gets into a fight with police and literally punches a police officer in the face, there is a good chance that person will be gunned down without hesitation….and rightfully so, in my opinion. However, if you are an illegal alien and you get into a fight with a Border Patrol agent, our Border agents aren’t allowed to use deadly force against an illegal as quickly as a police officer would against a citizen…
It is absolute outrageous, and our Border Agents need to be able to use deadly force. Once people hear that there are deadly consequences to assaulting our Border Patrol agents then they will stop doing it so often.
Let’s be thankful that the Border Patrol agent escaped this incident with his life in facing down this extremely dangerous illegal alien. This is why enhancing and strengthening our Border Security is extremely important and must be a high priority right now. As these brave men and women face unparalleled dangers on the Frontline in America’s war on Drugs, Violent Criminals and Trafficking.
Do everything you can to support President Trump right now as he is the main reason that our agents have finally been allowed to effectively do their jobs!
God Bless the Border Patrol, ICE, and all LEO’s.
