Customs and Border Patrol confirmed last week that a Border Patrol Agent patrolling a rural area of southern Arizona near the U.S-Mexico border was attacked by a group of assailants and shot.

An unidentified group of individuals were arrested shortly after the shooting and processed on immigration violations. As of Monday authorities are yet to charge them with crimes related to the attack.

The agent, who was not named in a press conference held over the incident, was described by Chief Patrol Agent Rodolfo Karisch as a veteran with 21 years of experience with the agency. He was patrolling alone early Tuesday  in a rural area south of Arivaca, Arizona, about ten miles of the U.S-Mexico border.

The agent was attacked by a group of individuals, one of whom discharged a firearm at him several times. Having been shot, the agent returned fire. Outnumbered and possibly outgunned, the agent returned to his vehicle to administer first aid and call for backup. He was later evacuated to an area hospital to receive medical attention.

An Arizona rancher named Jim Chilton who owns the land on which the border patrol agent was assaulted claims to have been briefed by DHS about the incident. He was told that the agent would likely have been killed if not for the protective vest he was wearing, as the unidentified individuals who attacked him shot him in the chest.

The Sinaloa Mexican drug cartel is known to operate almost freely in southern Arizona, smuggling drugs ranging from marijuana to opiates and running a lucrative human trafficking business in which migrants are moved across the border. It’s extremely possible the armed individuals who assailed an Arizona border patrol agent had drug cartel connections.

President Trump is Deporting Unaccompanied Illegal Alien Minors to Prevent Spread of Coronavirus

Left-wing groups are agitating to stop the President from deporting these illegals.

Trump 24 Million Democrats

President Donald Trump has started deporting unaccompanied minors found trying to illegally cross the U.S. border in order to stop the spread of coronavirus, and liberals are enraged as a result.

The administration is enforcing a March 20 order issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which states that no unauthorized individual could cross the border during the coronavirus pandemic.

The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has confirmed that the CDC policy is being applied to migrant children at the border, according to BuzzFeed News.

“All aliens CBP encounters may be subject to the CDC’s Order Suspending Introduction Of Persons From A Country Where A Communicable Disease Exists (March 20, 2020), including minors,” a CBP official told BuzzFeed News in a statement.

“When minors are encountered without adult family members, CBP works closely with their home countries to transfer them to the custody of government officials and reunite them with their families quickly and safely, if possible,” they added.

Left-wing activists who support the migrant trafficking industry are up in arms that the Trump administration is actually enforcing the law and putting Americans first during an unprecedented pandemic.

“Children arriving at the border, many of whom have endured unimaginable harm at home and on their journey, are the most vulnerable group encountered by border officials. Unaccompanied children are particularly vulnerable to trafficking,” said Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, a policy analyst at the American Immigration Council. “The answer to coronavirus cannot be to put children in harm’s way.”

Eleanor Acer, who works as the refugee protection director for Human Rights First, said that the Trump administration is “using” the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse “to advance their long-standing goal of overturning US laws protecting vulnerable children and people seeking asylum.”

During the crisis, the number of referrals for unaccompanied minors who arrive illegally into the U.S. has dropped precipitously. Referrals from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have dropped 78 percent over the past month, with only four unaccompanied minor aliens being funneled toward the US refugee agency on Sunday.

“This is a drastic drop in referrals, especially compared to 2019, when well over a hundred unaccompanied children were referred to ORR each day,” said Sarah Pierce, an analyst with the Migration Policy Institute.

“While it likely reflects decreased arrivals at the southern border, it also suggests that many are being refused entry, in direct contravention of federal law,” she added.

The administration’s opponents claim that the President is not following the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA), a law that was signed by former President George W. Bush in 2008 that allows illegals to flood the border.

“Reports that DHS is not following the TVPRA are deeply troubling,” wrote Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), in a letter issued to acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf.

“We have an obligation to ensure the health and safety of these children. Children do not have to be put in harm’s way to protect us from the coronavirus pandemic. DHS has the ability and capacity to protect both these children and the public. We request that DHS stop this practice immediately,” they added.

Even during a coronavirus crisis, the far-left Democrats are still refusing to shut down the border even if it means the pandemic will worsen as a direct result.
