New details are coming out about the incident yesterday that left a border patrol agent dead, as major media sources continue to ignore the crime committed on the southern border that also left another agent in critical condition.
We first reported on the incident as it happened yesterday, where we found that one border patrol agent was dead and another was listed as being in critical condition after they were called to respond to activity on Sunday morning. At the time, we had few details on what activity was taking place, but we do know that the two men were working together and after leaving the Van Horn Station to investigate the call, one of the two radioed for help.
Later, agent Rogelio Martinez was found with injuries to his head and body. He was unconscious at the time and later died.
The first outlet to report on the situation was conservative Breitbart Texas and now the National Border Patrol Council is confirming some details of the assault, saying that the two were tracking a “group of illegal aliens” who, when confronted, beat the two agents with rocks.
According to the president of the NBPC, Brandon Judd said that Martinez “appears to have been ambushed by a group of illegal aliens whom he was tracking… [and] he was struck in the head multiple times with a rock or rocks.” Judd, who is also a fellow Border Patrol Agent, said that the “other agent arrived on scene a short time later and was also ambushed and struck in the head… all because we have failed to secure our borders from such criminals.” Right now, there are approximately 16,000 Border Patrol agents.
Without the initial coverage by conservative media outlets like Right Wing News, it’s reasonable that Customs and Border Protection would’ve been able to stay quiet on the incident. But since yesterday they have had to confirm the death and injury of their agents, but refused to give any more details.
Judd was also quoted as saying that “when all the facts come to light on this matter, I believe the public will be outraged,” saying again that the borders “must be secured and criminals must be held accountable.”
The Van Horn Station has been in placed since 1970 and has five officers on staff. Before that, the area only had two staffers and they are responsible for 15 miles of border between Texas and Mexico.
