The Recent US-Mexico Border Incident.
#1
If deaths are occurring during the official protection of one's borders, when is it politically correct
to call it an invasion?

Quote:Slain border agent may have been beaten to death by rocks in ‘grisly scene,’ union leader says.

'A U.S. Border Patrol agent who was killed while on patrol in southwest Texas may have been beaten
to death by attackers wielding rocks, according to the president of the National Border Patrol Council.

Brandon Judd, president of the labor union, said Agent Rogelio Martinez died Sunday of blunt force
trauma to the head.

“I have been told by several agents that it was a grisly scene, and that his injuries were very extensive,”
Judd said Monday in a phone interview with The Washington Post. “We believe he was struck in the
head with rocks, or multiple rocks.”

Federal authorities have not yet said how Martinez was killed.

Authorities have been searching for witnesses and potential suspects after Martinez was killed and a
fellow agent was seriously injured. Officials with U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Border
Patrol said in a statement that the pair were “responding to activity” near Interstate 10 in Van Horn, Tex.,
when they were harmed.
The other agent called for help, and other agents provided medical care and took them to a hospital.

Martinez, 36, died from his injuries, officials said.
The El Paso native had been a border agent since August 2013.

The other agent, who was not identified by authorities, remains in the hospital in serious condition,
officials said...'

"Invasion" seems to be the proper description here, in my opinion. 

I hope they found the guilty parties and put them on trial for murder. Or maybe they will go below the radar to receive 'justice' and never be heard from again. 
If one cannot obey the border laws without going to the extremes of killing another to come across the line, then we definitely don't want that person walking on our streets.

The most likely scenario is that they hustled their asses back across the border and are at this moment collecting their bounty from the cartel bosses.

There has been damned little information released about this incident, and I can't speculate any further. It seems like everyone is content to keep this one under the radar, on all sides - the law, because there is probably an ongoing investigation, and lawless liberals, because they don't want to give the impression that Mexicans are a murderous bunch.

Ain't NOBODY talking.

I've also had a look around and there seems to be scant news regarding this particular incident.
But looking at the sites that involve border crossings, it may be just an almost-usual occurrence.

Quote:Border Patrol union says agents were "ambushed" but questions remain.

'A U.S. Border Patrol agent was tracking a group of undocumented immigrants when he was
ambushed in a rock attack, a spokesman for the agency's national union said.

Agent Rogelio Martinez, 36, of El Paso, died Sunday after he and his Big Bend sector partner
responded to activity near Interstate 10 in the Van Horn area, which is about 120 miles east of
El Paso.

"We do believe it was an ambush. It was not random activity," said Chris Cabrera, spokesman
for the National Border Patrol Council union. The FBI, which is the lead agency investigating the
incident, has not confirmed if the  injuries were the result of an attack. 

Martinez's partner is in stable condition in the intensive care unit of an El Paso hospital.
"What we were told was that Agent Martinez had signs of a group," Cabrera said. "He had foot signs.
He didn’t say how many. When his partner got to him, he had already been attacked."

It is not known how large of a group Martinez was tracking near a culvert, Cabrera said.

“He had foot signs. He didn’t say how many.
When his partner got to him, he had already been attacked.”
Chris Cabrera, spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council union. After his partner radioed for
help, the Border Patrol "cast a wide net," including a helicopter, to try to find the group, Cabrera said.

"We don’t know if it was one assailant or multiple assailants," Cabrera said.

Cabrera said that Martinez's partner was seriously injured and does not remember much about the
incident. "He is expected to survive. He has a long recovery ahead of him," Cabrera said. 

Few details have been released by authorities who said the incident is still under investigation.
Gov. Greg Abbott announced that a $20,000 reward is being offered by Texas Crime Stoppers for
information leading to the arrest of anyone involved.

Rush Carter, a supervisor for the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol region that includes the area where
Martinez died, told the Associated Press that all the agency can confirm is that the two "were injured
while performing their regular duties" and that reports the agents were attacked are "speculation."

The Associated Press, citing an anonymous source, also reported that investigators believe Martinez
may have fallen down a 14-foot culvert.

The FBI in a news release Monday night said Border Patrol agents found the two agents “in a culvert area”
adjacent to I-10 about 12 miles east of Van Horn late Saturday night.
They provided immediate medical care and took them to a Van Horn hospital.
The agents sustained traumatic head injuries and broken bones, according to the FBI...'

Quote:Mystery Still Surrounds Circumstances of Border Patrol Agent's Death Near Van Horn.

'Van Horn, TX -The FBI is leading the investigation into the death of one and serious injury
of another U.S. Border Patrol Agent near the Van Horn Station in Culberson County.

According to the FBI, both agents suffered traumatic head injuries as well as broken bones.
The FBI stated that on Saturday, Nov. 18 at 11:20 p.m. the two injured agents were located
in a culvert area adjacent Interstate 10 about 2 miles east of Van Horn.

The FBI statement clarifies when the attack happened. News reports Sunday suggested th
 attack happened Sunday afternoon. The injured agents were administered medical care until
ambulances arrived and rushed both to the hospital in Van Horn.
Later, both agents were airlifted separately to El Paso for more advanced medical care...'

'...The AP reported early Tuesday morning that, “Rogelio Martinez was found at the bottom of a
14-foot culvert and that investigators believe he may have fallen.”

But, the AP quotes an anonymous source further, suggesting that the area where the agents
were harmed is a known for drug smuggling activity. “

Agents often look for drugs in culverts,” the AP report states. And, “Cabrera said agents who
responded to the scene described it as "grisly" and said Martinez and his partner had "extensive
injuries." Chris Cabrera is a spokesman for a border patrol agents union, the report states...'

Maybe the left doesn't want to show that we need the border wall Trump is building.  Glad to see they caught the guy, if this is him.

Update:

Quote:Border Patrol agent Rogelio Martinez's autopsy leaves key question unanswered.

'A U.S. Border Patrol agent found severely hurt beside a remote West Texas highway along
with his injured partner died of "blunt force trauma" to his head caused by an "undetermined
manner of death," according to an autopsy report released Tuesday night.

The report sheds little new light on how agent Rogelio Martinez was fatally injured.
Martinez also had multiple bone fractures when he and the other agent were found Nov. 18 in
a culvert beside Interstate 10 near Van Horn, Texas.

Dr. Janice Diaz-Cavalliery, assistant El Paso County medical examiner, found that Martinez
had a skull fracture, a fractured eye socket, multiple rib fractures and a broken collarbone,
according to the 11-page report. She found brain hemorrhaging but no other internal injuries.

A barbiturate called Butalbital - often found in drugs combined with aspirin, codeine or caffeine
-was in Martinez's system, Diaz-Cavalliery found. "Signs noted following its administration include
drowsiness, sedation and ataxia," she wrote. Ataxia is an inability to coordinate movements.

Martinez's partner, who had suffered similar injuries, radioed for help while the two were investigating
a report of activity on Nov. 18 outside of Van Horn, about 110 miles southeast of El Paso and about
30 miles from the border with Mexico.

Martinez died at a hospital a few hours later.
His partner has recovered, but investigators say he doesn't remember what happened.

Some elected officials initially called the incident an attack, and FBI officials said they were investigating
it as a potential assault. But Culberson County Sheriff Oscar Carrillo, one of the first responders at the
scene, has said he thinks a semitrailer may have hit Martinez and his partner accidentally.

The FBI is offering a $50,000 reward for information solving the case. Texas is offering a $20,000
reward for similar information.

The FBI widened its search for information on Martinez' death to several states, even putting up billboards
asking for help in Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, reports CBS El Paso affiliate
KDBC-TV...'
