    Rep. Clay Higgins Challenges Left-Wing Border Myths in a Brutally Honest New Video

    Brittany M. Hughes | 11 hours ago

    Louisiana Rep. Clay Higgins just laid it down when it comes to the dangers United States border agents face on the field every day at the Southwest U.S.-Mexico border.

    In a video posted to Higgins’ Facebook page Sunday (which had garnered nearly 2 million views in just 15 hours), the Republican representative challenged left-wing naysayers who get riled up whenever border agents are forced to protect themselves from assaults by illegal aliens seeking to cross the border unlawfully.

    Standing near the edge of the U.S.-Mexico border, Higgins explained, “The next time you see a liberal reporter complaining about border patrol returning fire on some poor, poor illegal immigrant throwing little pebbles at them, understand, that’s not what they’re throwing.”

    “They’re throwing this,” he said, holding up a rock twice the size of a man’s fist. “And if you don’t think this is a lethal weapon, you obviously haven’t read the Bible very much.”

    In a brutally honest, up-front clip spanning fewer than two minutes, Higgins reveals just how border agents have to protect themselves against attacks while on the job.

    When it comes to describing violent attacks on border agents, Higgins is dead-on. Customs and Border Protection shows ssaults against border agents are up 179 percent over this time last year, with a total of 442 assaults on border personnel having been reported in the five months between Oct. 1 and Feb. 28. That’s an average of about three assaults per day.

    One border agent in California was recently injured after his vehicle was pelted with rocks, shattering the glass. Dozens of other agents have been beamed in the head with a brick or jumped by an illegal alien trying to get into the United States.

    On Valentines Day, 126 individual assaults were reported from a single incident, in which seven agents were attacked by six individuals launching rocks, bottles and logs.

    I don't have a problem with agents returning fire - in fact, I think they should have the right to fire if an illegal doesn't stop when ordered.

    It would be sad to see anyone loose their life - for any reason. The fact is, someone sneaking across the border are a danger in many ways to Americans. They are a political danger (we are seeing that right now), they are a physical danger (diseases) and we also see they all too often have criminal tendencies. They are a financial danger - taking jobs and taxes. They are a danger on our streets. The list goes on and on -

    We only learn of the crimes that are actually reported. A lot of crime is never reported. Rape is one of the most under reported crimes in this country. A lot of the child molestation takes place in the illegal or hispanic community and never gets reported.

    Also, you have law enforcement who will not aid immigration just by holding a criminal, you have police officers who do not even check out fake ID's, police officers quite often don't even stop hispanics. When you realize that, you have to wonder how any crimes that never actually get written up or filed on illegals. I think it would be mind boggling.
