Armed Migrant Assaults Border Patrol Agent in Arizona
A migrant armed with a pistol and other weapons assaulted an El Centro Sector Border Patrol agent. At one point, the migrant attempted to wield a machete.
El Centro Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gregory Bovino tweeted a photo showing the assortment of weapons found on a man who allegedly assaulted an agent. The agent subdued the man without incident.
Following the migrant’s apprehension, a search uncovered a pistol, hatchet, and other weapons.
Border Patrol agents remain among the most assaulted of all federal law enforcement officers. During Fiscal Year 2021, more than 200 agents were assaulted.
Recent statistics confirming the number of assaults on agents for this fiscal year are not currently available on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website.
During October, the first month of this fiscal year, El Centro Sector agents apprehended more than 5,000 migrants who illegally crossed the border from Mexico. This sector, protected in large part by border wall systems, is the second lowest of the nine southwest border sectors, the Southwest Land Border Encounters Report shows. Nearly 90 percent of those apprehended in the sector were single adults.
The overwhelming majority of those apprehended were single adult Mexican nationals, CBP officials reported. Just over 500 were classified as family units or unaccompanied minors.

All the illegal PIGS need to be shot in mass before getting to American soil. That is the only way to stop this and Joebama. Fuck them all
Not just illegal aliens at the border. But all of the store looters need to be shot DEAD. Looters may then think twice before ripping off goods.
I agree with Jasper been saying from the very beginning. The Democratic Governor’s and mayors set a precedent that cities feel they have to follow. They should have been warned and then dealt with accordingly. We are a Country of Laws but when anything doesn’t go their way it’s always the same outcome, burn, looting, stealing and killing innocent people. How many hundreds of billions of dollars have they cost this Country? The government has never gave us a real number.
