U.S. Border Patrol agent kills illegal alien after being attacked
According to Texas news website breitbart.com, a Border Patrol agent was brutally attacked by an illegal alien in the Yuma Sector on the U.S.-Mexico border on the night of June 9 and the agent responded with deadly force and killed the illegal alien.
Multiple sources operating under the umbrella of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) discussed the issue with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity. The Border Patrol agency confirmed the incident to Breitbart Texas when called.
According to the sources, three men illegally entered the U.S. and crossed the Colorado River when they were detected. A lone Border Patrol agent responded and one of the three men attacked the agent. The alien grabbed for the agent’s service weapon. In the process of the agent protecting his weapon, the alien grabbed his radio and began beating the agent about the head. The alien also grabbed the agent’s baton and used that to beat the agent as well.
The Border Patrol agent was left with head injuries and a severe laceration above his right eyebrow that required multiple stitches. The agent’s hands were also swollen after the life-threatening attack from the alien. The agent responded with deadly force and the alien attacker is now dead.
The illegal alien did not have identification on his person and his identity and country of origin remain unknown, though our sources are confident the attacker was an illegal alien.
The other two illegal aliens are in the custody of U.S. Border Patrol.
