U.S. Border Patrol agents have a tough, around the clock job of securing our land and coastal waters from immigrants entering unlawfully into our country, drug smuggling, human trafficking, and terrorism.
Their jobs are made more difficult as Democrats continue their narrative on open borders and pushing for rights of illegal immigrants.
Breitbart reported that a U.S. Border Patrol agent in the California border town of Calexico was brutally assaulted by an illegal alien trying to evade arrest.
This comes days after Border Patrol agents warned that there has been a disturbing increase in violent crimes against their agents in recent weeks.
It all started when Calexico border agents noticed three men illegally cross the International Boundary fence dividing Mexico from southern California.
When they approached the illegal aliens, one of them became violent and kicked the agent in the face several times.
The agent was wounded so badly that he had to be hospitalized.
Attorney General has promised swift and sure prosecution against any illegal immigrant who assaults agents and CBP officers.
“Prosecution to the extent practicable cases of assault, resisting, or impeding officers engaged in the performance of their duties in administrative and criminal immigrationenforcement,” Sessions said back in April.
“There will be legal consequences anytime a person assaults or attempts to assault a Border Patrol agent,” El Centro Sector Assistant Chief Patrol Agent David S. Kim said in a written statement.
The Washington Times reported that assaults on U.S. Border Patrol agents have spiked this year to a truly alarming level, as there were 550 assaults on agents between January 1 and June 1. That’s up from 300 assaults at this same time last year.
This was revealed by Carla Provost, the acting chief of the Border Patrol, who used the statistics as a warning during testimony on gang activity among the illegal immigrant population.
Many of the assaults were “rocking” incidents in which those on the Mexican side of the border toss large boulders over the fence to try to injure agents.
