Illegal Aliens Killed Border Agent by Crushing in His Skull with Rocks, Says NBPC

Breitbart – by Brandon Darby & Ildefonso Ortiz

Exclusive details have emerged on the early morning attack against Border Patrol agents that left one agent dead and another hospitalized in serious condition on November, 19 2017. Breitbart Texas first broke the news of the death and injuries and now the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) says that their agents on the ground have stated that the agents were tracking a group of illegal aliens who then beat the agents with rocks until one was killed and the other hospitalized.  

Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd, also president of the NBPC, stated, “What we know is that Border Patrol Agent Rogilio Martinez appears to have been ambushed by a group of illegal aliens whom he was tracking. Our agents’ reports from the ground say that he was struck in the head multiple times with a rock or rocks.”

Agent Judd continued, “The other agent arrived on scene a short time later and was also ambushed and struck in the head with what is believed to have been a rock or rocks. These disgusting acts and complete disregard for human life need to stop immediately. Family members of slain Agent Martinez will never get to see him come home again all because we have failed to secure our borders from such criminals.”

Shortly after Breitbart Texas broke the news of the incident, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confirmed that one Border Patrol agent was dead and another hospitalized in serious condition; however, authorities would not provide more details. Breitbart Texas was unable to confirm the details with CBP and other federal agencies. The NBPC is the organization that represents approximately 16,000 of our nation’s Border Patrol agents.

Our original report is included below.

One Border Patrol agent is dead and his partner left hospitalized in serious condition in the Big Bend Sector of Texas. The FBI is leading the investigation while Border Patrol Special Operations agents and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Air and Marine Operations aircrews are currently searching the area for possible attackers.

Breitbart Texas learned from a trusted CBP official that details on the matter are scarce.

We do know that two Border Patrol agents working as partners in the Van Horn Station area of responsibility of the Big Bend Sector responded to “activity.” Whether the activity was an activated sensor or something else is currently unknown. This occurred on the morning of Sunday, November 19, 2017.

One of the Border Patrol agents later radioed into the communication center saying that he needed assistance and that he was injured. Other Border Patrol agents responded and found one agent injured and unconscious with injuries to his head and body. That agent, Rogelio Martinez, was later pronounced dead. Breitbart has learned that the agent’s family has been notified.

The responding agents also found the partner who had radioed for help. The agents transported the injured agent to the hospital where he is in “serious condition,” according to the official.Border Patrol agents and Culberson County Sheriff’s Office deputies secured the area.

Border Patrol Agent and President of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) Brandon Judd spoke with Breitbart Texas and expressed the council’s deepest condolences to the family of Agent Martinez and to the family of the other agent who is not named at this time. Agent Judd said that this is another example of why the border must be secured. Judd stated, “When all facts come to light on this matter, I believe the public will be outraged as there are those who do not value life who come across our border. Our borders must be secured and criminals must be held accountable.”

  1. Wow, this article just strengthens the whole excuse of they just come here to feed their family and give them a better life. The word invasion along with the whole English language has been totally destroyed.

  2. And what were these “dreamers” dreaming of? Getting across the border with 50 kilos of cocaine?

    They didn’t ambush and kill border agents for welfare checks and food stamps.

  3. proof our government is falling down on the one big job they claim to be for, protecting its citizens,, well guess they are a dismal failure again , and a nother dam good reason to stand on your own two feet and provide your own security, because these pedophiles are just worried about their own skin , nothing else

    I mean come on, if they will attack a well armed group , with resources to fight back with .. what has the average person got as far as a chance against them? especially unarmed and untrained

    BTW was that an assault rock? did it have a high capacity gravel magazine? was it a black rock and fully automatic?
    what accessories did it have ? a rock stock maybe?

  4. Said it before, saying it again:

    Put the Klan on the boarder! Supply them with ammo, food and water and binoculars. The job would be done with pride! The job would be done economically! No reason to build a wall…as Ron Paul pointed out years ago, walls have 2 sides and can be used to hold YOU in!!

    1. “The Klan” is financed by the Ford Foundation. It is controlled by the internationals. It is a collective and is a part of the problem, not the answer.

    2. Albert Pike (‘Morals and dogma of the ancient and accepted scottish rite of freemasonry’) played a part in starting the Klan.

      Masonic offshoots are no better than their origin.

  5. This is a repost of the comment I made last night about this when the news was first poste here by Mary (I think)–

    “So the BORDER Patrol was “on patrol near I-10” in the Van Horn Station area…which is only about 50 miles from the border (and nearly 200 miles from the actual Big Bend area, north) from the dirt Chispa Road that folks I know use to go fishing along the Rio Grande, and folks, the road is hard to find (that is, my husband and I could not find it!) and is in bad shape from what I heard about fifteen years ago (I am sure it’s in worse shape now). But here’s the thing–the Border Patrol is no longer confined to the border or close proximity–the “Constitution Free Zone 100 miles from the border” is in effect, right? Since I used to teach in Van Horn, I wonder what impact all this FBI stuff is having on the residents there around Thanksgiving?

    And transported to a local hospital, eh? Hope it wasn’t the one in Van Horn–this facility is so small and understaffed basically they can do not much there. Hopefully Big Bend Regional…but that could explain why the one agent died…if his life was in danger a transport to Big Bend Regional in Alpine about 100 miles away he wouldn’t get there soon enough.

    And if you look at the article linked to at the bottom there is a picture of a Border Patrol van along a wall–which is nowhere near the Big Bend region or Van Horn, Texas.

    Finally, and this is the truth–the area around Van Horn, according to students I had and their parents, is a haven for Satanic rituals.”

    And since the border from the Van Horn perspective is only 50 miles away and maybe shorter (depending on if they used Chispa Raod or not), this sort of thing could happen easily. And yes, there are plenty of rocks around Van Horn, as well as a “pond” of sorts with a viaduct of sorts surrounding it–made of rocks. It is around this area my students told me that Satanic rituals take place. Not saying the illegals were Satanists, but there are cults in Mexico that practice stuff such as Santaria and Voodoo type stuff, and Van Horn is mostly Hispanic…
