While on duty along the Mexico-California boundary, a U.S. Border Patrol agent was reportedly accosted by two thugs who bombarded his vehicle with large rocks. The incident occurred Saturday afternoon according to a report provided to Breitbart by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.
“The windows of the vehicle were shattered,” Breitbart noted. “Fortunately, officials stated, the agent only received minor injuries. The two suspects fled the scene after Mexican officials were notified of the assault. Mexican security officials were not able to immediately locate them.”
While distressing, this unprovoked attack was nothing new. Speaking two months ago in front of a Senate committee, then-Border Patrol chief Mark. A. Morgan testified that assaults on agents had risen by 200 percent from 2015 to 2016 alone.
“The men and women of the Border Patrol have one of the toughest jobs in federal law enforcement,” he said, according to the Washington Examiner. “They are the most assaulted federal law enforcement in the U.S.. More than 7,400 border patrol agents have been assaulted since 2006.”
What’s more, the attacks on agents have often involved a lot more than just tiny pebbles.
“The reality being far from the false narrative of ‘kids throwing pebbles,’ the life-threatening rock attacks against Border Patrol agents often occur in remote areas when a solitary Border Patrol agent may be up to a 90-minute drive from their nearest backup,” Breitbart reported three years ago.
Below is a picture of one of these lethal rocks:
Instead of concerning themselves with these dangerous, attacks, however, liberal media charlatans have focused their efforts on exposing what it has felt is an overuse of “force” by Border Patrol agents.
“Border Patrol agents and customs officers have used force less frequently this year … but the official tally omitted at least one fatal shooting in El Paso, calling into question its accuracy and highlighting the need for more detailed reporting, civil rights advocates said,” the Los Angeles Times complained last April.
Really? This is what worries these hacks?
And this, folks, is why a border wall is so desperately needed. Our Border Patrol agents face an onslaught of growing violence, but few in the government seem to care, which is why it rests on President Donald Trump and the GOP-led Congress to act on their behalf — sooner rather than later.
