A U.S. Border Patrol agent who was shot and killed Thursday night was responding to a potential incursion into the United States, authorities said.
Agent Robert Rosas suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died at the scene around 9 p.m. in the Campo area in San Diego County, California, said Richard Barlow of the U.S. Border Patrol.
Barlow, speaking at a Friday news conference, said authorities did not have additional details about the incident, which he said occurred near the fence that separates the U.S. and Mexico.
Other agents responded to the area and found Rosas, Barlow said.
They caught three possible suspects, and the Mexicans are saying they caught four men suspected of being involved. The comment from our wonderful Homeland Security chief?
U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says, “This act of violence will not stand.”
Well, I'll tell you what, secretary; if you had people more concerned with doing something about our borders and less worried about putting out bullcrap studies so the President's 'enemies' can be demonized as terrorists(when you don't want to use that word on actual terrorists), and a bunch of the politicians you work with were more concerned about our borders than with buying votes, MAYBE SOMETHING WOULD GET DONE.
Like an actual fence, maybe?
