An illegal alien was arrested after allegedly assaulting a U.S. Border Patrol agent in New Mexico.
Agents working near Mt. Cristo Rey, New Mexico, were searching for a group of illegal immigrants who had just crossed the border near Puerto de Anapra, Mexico. Mt. Cristo Rey is located in the extreme southeastern tip of the state and a few miles west of El Paso, Texas.

Agents requested air support from a helicopter assigned to the El Paso Branch of Air and Marine Operations (AMO), according to information obtained from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials by Breitbart Texas Monday afternoon. The aircrew responded and used its “forward looking infrared camera” (FLIR) to locate the immigrants who were hiding in the darkness of a near moonless night.

The aircrew guided agents to the location of the immigrants. One of the illegal aliens who had been hiding in the brush suddenly ran toward one of the agents. As the agent grabbed the man and attempted to take him into custody, a fight broke out. As the agent was wrestling with the man, both were “hurtled over a six-foot ledge,” officials stated. The agent’s head struck a rock and he was temporarily disabled. The suspect fled the scene.

The aircrew from the AMO helicopter used its spotlight follow the suspect and guide other agents to his location. A “government issued electronic control device” was eventually used to disable the man. He was taken into custody without further incident.
