Border Patrol Agent Killed, Another in Serious Condition in Texas

One Border Patrol agent is dead and his partner left hospitalized in serious condition in the Big Bend Sector of Texas. The FBI is leading the investigation while Border Patrol Special Operations agents and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Air and Marine Operations aircrews are currently searching the area for possible attackers.

Breitbart Texas learned from a trusted CBP official that details on the matter are scarce.

We do know that two Border Patrol agents working as partners in the Van Horn Station area of responsibility of the Big Bend Sector responded to “activity.” Whether the activity was an activated sensor or something else is currently unknown. This occurred on the morning of Sunday, November 19, 2017.

One of the Border Patrol agents later radioed into the communication center saying that he needed assistance and that he was injured. Other Border Patrol agents responded and found one agent injured and unconscious with injuries to his head and body. That agent, Rogelio Martinez, was later pronounced dead. Breitbart has learned that the agent’s family has been notified.

The responding agents also found the partner who had radioed for help. The agents transported the injured agent to the hospital where he is in “serious condition,” according to the official.

Border Patrol agents and Culberson County Sheriff’s Office deputies secured the area.

Border Patrol Agent and President of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) Brandon Judd spoke with Breitbart Texas and expressed the council’s deepest condolences to the family of Agent Martinez and to the family of the other agent who is not named at this time. Agent Judd said that this is another example of why the border must be secured. Judd stated, “When all facts come to light on this matter, I believe the public will be outraged as there are those who do not value life who come across our border. Our borders must be secured and criminals must be held accountable.”

    “The FBI is leading the investigation ….”…yep, and THAT will be the end of this right there. They cannot seem to find anybody to persecute (no,I spelled it right) unless they have them in jail first. I mean what is going to be the excuse this time? “whomever did this wasn’t breaking our laws because they didn’t mean to do it? That was worn out the first time I heard Corney use it in Hitlary’s defense. And if not that, then will Sessions put forth his “I’m not taking sides” malarky and once more it all just goes to shi*? But who would believe the FBI these days anyways..not I fo’ sho’….more run around, more red tape, more death and destruction of WE THE PEOPLE is what is going to come of yet another FBI multi-megabuck-boondoggle and whore infested-bound-for-the-toilet “investigation”. “Special” people in charge of “special” ops… They’ll find some poor son-of-a-bitch, and probably his wife and kiddos, out in the middle of nowhere trying to keep up a farm or ranch, and after due bludgeoning diligence get them to falsely admit “they” did it… If you really want this crap to all just go away, do what I said in an earlier post. Anonymously, put an eight to twelve man squad of VETERAN combat Marines in the area —don’t care which side of the border. Get’em an old Huey out of surplus city, and an M-60 with all the ammo it can hold. Arm’em with 14’s instead of ’16’s, and put an E-9 Master Gunnery Sgt. in charge…NO brass hats to gum up the works. Let that E-9 go on temp additional duty, assigned to Rex Tillerson where they will get all the extra help they could ever want and mebbe even replace that antique ’60 with one of the newer ones from Rhodesia that never EVER jam….No point at all in issuing “Rules of Engagement” as the Marines already know what to do. I figure less than a month, and the country there will belong to WE THE PEOPLE again….One kicker though….got to keep the ever loving shysters of the Congress and Senate off these guys’ backs…BUT PLEASE DON’T INCLUDE ANYBODY IN THIS SQUAD THAT HAS BEEN SUPPORTING THE NFL IN IT’S KNEE OPS…
