These 10 Pictures of Border Patrol Agents Attacked by Illegals Are Shocking (GRAPHIC)
It seems like nothing is acceptable when trying to find a way to keep people from coming here unlawfully, even though illegal immigrants have been using our healthcare and education systems, not to mention voting in our elections.
Texas has tried to take matters into her own hands by shutting down the border between their state and Mexico. They argue that since the federal government won’t do anything to keep out illegals, they have to protect their state on their own. I agree with them.
Breitbart Texas has reported extensively on the left-of-center campaign to restrict the ability of Border Patrol agents to defend themselves and on the false narratives such open-borders advocates use in their political and media attacks against the men and women of the Border Patrol.It is absolutely obscene that these border patrol agents are not allowed to defend themselves against violent people that will stop at nothing to cross our borders. We should be standing up for them, defending their authority to simply do their jobs. We should increase their funding and strengthen their defenses, not limit them and allow them to be put in harm’s way. Disgusting.
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. The solitary Border Patrol agent’s radio often does not work due to insufficient communications infrastructure along the U.S./Mexico border–leaving the agent alone and unable to call for help. The attacks often come from illegal immigrants trafficking drugs or human beings, or from illegal immigrants trying to divert the attention and resources of the Border Patrol in an effort to assist drug and human traffickers.
The below images were provided to Breitbart Texas from Homeland Security Today. The images show injuries to Border Patrol agents, damage to Border Patrol vehicles, and some of the large rocks used in such attacks. They graphically reveal the reality of such rock attacks and the risks such attacks pose to the very lives of U.S. Border Patrol agents.
