DOUGLAS, Ariz. - A U.S. Border Patrol agent required medical treatment after he was pelted with rocks while trying to arrest five illegal immigrants near Douglas.

The Border Patrol says as the agent sustained a 5-inch cut on his head Sunday night when he was showered with rocks thrown over the fence along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The illegal immigrants he was trying to arrest, says the patrol, fled back into Mexico.

The agent was airlifted to a Tucson hospital, where he was treated and released.

The Border Patrol's Tucson Sector says there have been 201 assaults on its agents since Oct. 1, the start of the agency's budget year.

The sector encompasses all of Arizona except the southwestern corner of the state.

I wonder what they will do when we start to retaliate. Oh wait, the cowards that they are they will make a run for the Mexican border.

The fuse is getting shorter . . ..

Toss a grenade on the other side and see what happens... I bet they will stop throwing rocks... If you are going to attack someone from another country on their soil, prepare to be attacked yourself..

Agreed and reading about the 5th upholding the convictions of Ramos and Compean has me seeing red. .

This MUST be a mistake! Illegals are good. They are hard-working and misunderstood, and only seek a better life. This border agent must be lying, and his wounds must be self-inflicted. They would never think of harming him. Stop posting these lies!

I think I may have wrote this before, but in case I didn't.......
Two years ago my dh and I were at the state patrol being fingerprinted again so that we could submit our sons N-600. The officer who was fingerprinting us was telling us how one of her collegues quit the state patrol in order to work with border patrol. She said that the Mexican troops fired -- yes, fired their guns at US border patrols to protect Mexican immigrants as they ran across the border. Can you believe that? Our law enforcement officers being shot at by Mexican military, and yet none of this is or can be reported? It is sickening how our own government (reps and dems alike, president down to the local mayors) have sold us all out for a quick buck and who knows what else!
She also said that whenever the state patrol pulled over a car that turned out to be full of illegals, ICE would refuse to come out and arrest them. ICE would tell the border patrol to let them go ---- they would be Chicagos problem. Around about this time, the state patrol would only make the call to ICE after the illegals car had been towed, then and only then would ICE come out and pick them up.

That icon rocks! and ITA. It's time for the culturally embedded criminal aliens to go home, I don't give a rats behind if Mexico doesn't want them, it's time for them to go NOW.
