    Assaults on Border Patrol Agents Up 15 Percent in August

    Criminal aliens assaulted Border Patrol agents 47 times in August. This represents an increase of 15 percent over the previous month.

    Broder Patrol agents remain among the most assaulted federal law enforcement officials, according to Congressional testimony from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Assaults of Border Patrol agents by illegal aliens attempting to evade arrest occurred 671 times this fiscal year, an increase of 67 percent over the same period in the previous year, according to information obtained from CBP by Breitbart Texas.

    This is a dramatic number when compared to assaults on other officers under the umbrella of CBP. Officers were assaulted only 39 times this fiscal year and officers in the Air and Marine Operations division only 10. These numbers represent a decrease in assaults of 30 and 63 percent respectively, CBP reports indicate.

    The assaults on Border Patrol agents increased despite the fact that border apprehensions are down by 24 percent in year-to-date comparisons.

    Fiscal Year 2016 set a record for the total number of CBP law enforcement officers assaulted during the past five years. A total of 585 agents and officers became victims of assault while attempting to secure the borders and ports of the United States. This year dramatically eclipsed that number with a total of 720 officers and agents assaulted. This with one month left to go in Fiscal Year 2017.

    U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions promised swift and sure prosecution for any illegal alien assaulting an agent during a speech in April before CBP personnel in Arizona, Breitbart Texas reported.

    Under Sessions’ memorandum issued that same day, the AG promised, “Prosecution, to the extent practicable, cases of assault, resisting, or impeding officers engaged in the performance of their duties in administrative and criminal immigration enforcement.”

    It remains to be seen if that threat will act as a deterrent to protect Border Patrol agents from assault.

    We absolutely need our troops on the border. We have needed this since the early years of the Bush II era. Bush claimed he put some troops on the border, but it turned out it was a scam, they were put 100 miles inland from the border and only authorized to work on BP equipment.

    Bush II should have been a Painter, not a President. I think it's been so long since we've had a great President, a lot of people don't even know what is "Presidential" any more. "Presidential" is defending the American People and running an efficient government. Trump needs to order Troops to the Border to stop all illegal immigration in its tracks. There is no prohibition of this, quite the opposite. The US Constitution gives the federal government direct authority to prohibit immigration. In fact, that is the only role of the federal government with regards to immigration under the US Constitution. All these "green cards", "visas", "worker permits" ... none of this is authorized by the US Constitution.
