    RIP Agent Rogelio Martinez, You died defending your country from foreign threats hellbent on breaking your laws.

    Border agent killed, another injured during ‘attack’ near Texas southern border

    A U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed in the line of duty Sunday while patrolling the Big Bend Sector of Texas along the southern border with Mexico.

    Agent Rogelio Martinez, 36, died of injuries sustained while responding to “activity” near Interstate 10 in the Van Horn Station area, according to a news release from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

    Martinez and his partner, who was injured, were transported to a hospital. The partner, who was not identified, remains hospitalized in serious condition.

    Border Protection spokesman Carlos Diaz told The Associated Press the FBI has taken over the investigation.

    Martinez, who was from El Paso, worked as a border agent since August 2013.

    President Trump pushed the need for his proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall Sunday night following the incident, tweeting: "Border Patrol Officer killed at Southern Border, another badly hurt. We will seek out and bring to justice those responsible. We will, and must, build the Wall!"

    Elaine Duke, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, released a statement Sunday calling Martinez’s death a “tragic event.”

    “Earlier this morning, I was notified that Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez died as a result of serious injuries suffered while on patrol in the Big Bend Sector of our southern border in Texas. Agent Martinez was responding to activity while on patrol with another agent, who was also seriously injured,” the statement read.

    The cartels released a statement years ago, that they give live fire cover to more major drug shipments to ensure their safe transfer from Mexico to the United States.

    According to liberals, they were just innocent "Dreamers" protecting themselves from the xenophobic Border Patrol agents. ..... :cool:

    Long past time to grant our border police the right to self-defense and zero tolerance for criminal vermin. If that upsets a bunch of narco-state thugs tough, they can go screw themselves; if it upsets a bunch of racist scumbags that's just too bad, too. Build the wall, plant land mines, shoot violators if they even look at border police the wrong way; no need to concern ourselves with the snivelings of criminals and their self-inflicted problems, and deport the lawyers responsible for getting these border police killed.
