A report from Breitbart outlines three border patrol agents that were assaulted within the last five days.



Illegal aliens assaulted three El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents in separated incidents over a five-day period. The agents did not sustain major injuries during the attacks.

Agents patrolling on bikes near the Calexico Port of Entry on the evening of October 11 came upon a man they suspected had illegally crossed the border from Mexico. As the agents questioned the man, he attacked one of the agents while resisting arrest, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials. The agent deployed pepper spray and safely took the 24-year-old Mexican national into custody.

Agents offered the migrant medical attention for his eyes but he declined. The agents took him to the station where he will be processed for immigration violations and assaulting a federal agent.

“Our agents put their safety on the line every time they go out and patrol the border,” El Centro Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria I. Chavez said in a written statement. “Acts of violence like the ones committed against our agents will not deter us from our mission.”

Later that evening, agents patrolling near the Gran Plaza Outlets in Calexico, California, encountered a group of people throwing rocks across the border from Mexico. Officials said the people in Mexico intended to cause harm or destruction in the United States. As backup approached, the aggressors left the area before Mexican officials could arrive. No arrests were made in this incident and none of the agents sustained injury.

An El Centro Sector agent patrolling in the desert area west of Mount Signal encountered a man he believed had illegally crossed the border from Mexico into California. As the agent approached, the man attempted to flee back to Mexico, officials stated.

The agent chased the Mexican national and eventually caught him. As he attempted to place the man in custody the migrant began to resist. He began assaulting the agent, officials stated, until backup arrived and the agents safely took the 41-year-old migrant into custody. The Mexican national declined medical attention.
