Border Patrol Agent Luis Aguilar died in the line of duty last Saturday. He was killed trying to stop a suspected drug smuggler's vehicle that had entered the US illegally.

Mexican Authorities Arrest Man in Killing of Border Patrol Agent

Mexican federal and state police arrested Jesus Navarro Montes on Tuesday in the northern state of Sonora for the killing, according to a joint statement distributed Wednesday by Mexico's federal Attorney General's office and Public Safety Department.

Authorities believe Navarro left Mexicali in Baja California and was headed for the U.S. in a Hummer carrying drugs on Saturday, the statement said.

After allegedly running over Aguilar, Navarro, 22, drove to Mexicali and gave the Hummer to accomplices for safekeeping, said a spokesman for Attorney General's office who could not be named according to departmental rules.

The official said Navarro acknowledged hitting the agent and has been taken to Mexicali.

Navarro had previously been detained and jailed for smuggling 10 undocumented migrants into the U.S., and there was a warrant for his arrest in Mexicali for human trafficking, the statement said.

It doesn't sound like he was a US citizen.

Are you surprised, Andreabeth?

It has been clearly stated on the local news that the driver of the Hummer was a Mexican National entering the United States illegally.

Thankfully, the scumbag has been arrested but he will probably be protected by the Mexican Government.

No, I am not at all surprised. On a previous thread on the subject, those of us who suspected it was probably someone in the US illegally who ran over the BP agent were castigated, called the 'R' word, etc. for suspecting that an illegal alien was the culprit. I was being sarcastic when I said that it didn't look like the guy in custody was a US citizen.

I remember those posts very well and I smelled the sarcasm but have learned the dangers of assuming anything.

by the way, the local media began reporting the scumbag's status almost immediately.

The sooner this guy gets extradited to the US the better. I just don't trust the Mexican authorities to hold him.

You would support that kind of corruption? The bribing of a police officer? That seems to be much of what is wrong with Mexico -- too many people see nothing wrong with bribery and extortion.

The media would like to ignore this and the other killing at the start of this year. 2 killings of border agents already for 2008. Both men were hispanics, both El Paso natives.
