Border Agent Ambushed and Killed by ‘Rock Throwing’ Illegal Aliens at Texas-Mexico Border +Video

By Jim Kouri  /  Conservative Base

When President Donald Trump on Thursday suggested that U.S. troops could use deadly physical force on anyone from the caravan of Central American migrants who throws rocks at Border Agents or military troops at the border because “there’s not much difference” between a stone and a gun, the anti-Trump news media went ballistic. (Watch new video on rock throwing illegal aliens posted below this story.)

The late Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez was killed with a blow to the head with a rock.
It appears the leftists and news media care more about the safety of lawbreakers than they do about U.S. cops and soldiers.

While the thought of American soldiers or cops being injured or killed doesn’t seem to bother the denizens of America’s newsrooms, they fret over the prospect of a criminal’s use of deadly force — rocks can and have killed Border agents — being stopped by a bullet.

“The news reports and other statements in the news media would have American civilians believe there was a policy of excessive force being implemented, but that’s just not so,” said former police training officer Manny Roccia. “Being struck in the head or other area [of the body] by a rock thrown at about 50 or 60 miles per hour could seriously injure a cop or even kill him or her if it strikes a sensitive part of the head or body,” added Roccia, a Latino from the Bronx, N.Y.

“If the news media wishes to verify that I’d be more than happy to demonstrate by throwing rocks at them on camera,” he joked.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was called in and helped Border agents and local cops who were searching Texas’ Big Bend area for suspects and witnesses.

After U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced the killing of agent Rogelio Martinez and they reported he was allegedly “beaten to death with a rock while on patrol” the news media’s silence was deafening. In fact, foreign news outlets gave the brave officer’s death more coverage than the U.S. news media..

According to officials, Martinez, who was 36 at the time of his death, and his Big Bend Sector partner were responding to suspicious activity. Martinez suffered a blow to his head from a rock thrown by an unknown suspect.

Responding Border Patrol agents provided immediate emergency medical care and transported him to a local hospital, where Martinez later died from his wounds.

Martinez had been a border agent since August 2013 and was from El Paso. According to media posts, he was survived by his fiancee.

This November 20, Martinez’s Texas family will hold a first-anniversary memorial for the brave Border Patrol agent who was killed by an illegal alien who struck him in his skull with a rock at close range and could count on left-wing politicians and news people to take his side in the public debate..

Border Patrol spokesmen said they could not provide any details on what caused the agent’s injuries or what led to them, but a union official from the National Border Patrol Council told the local news reporters from the TV/radio station KTSM  that the assailants were ‘undocumented immigrants’ who likely used rocks to beat the agent.

‘We strongly believe rocks were what was used,’ Border Patrol union vice president, Art Del Cueto, told the station’s news reporters.

At that time, Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Senator Ted Cruz, both Republicans, also publicly commented on the deadly incident that resulted in Martinez’s death, characterizing it as “an attack.”  An official for the National Association of Chiefs of Police called it “part of an ongoing invasion of the United States that is being waged because U.S. leaders are stonewalling President Donald Trump’s efforts to protect Americans and U.S. sovereignty.”

Sen. Cruz said the nation is grateful ‘for the courage and sacrifice of our border agents.’

He also said that what happened to Border Patrol Agent Rogelo Martinez is “a stark reminder that an ‘unsecured border’ poses a threat to the safety of the communities and border agents tasked with protecting them.”

Meanwhile, Governor Abbott tweeted in a similar vain: “Our prayers are with the families of this Border Patrol Agent who was killed and the other agent who was injured in this attack in Texas,’ he wrote. ‘Our resources must be increased to prevent these attacks in the future.”

      I hope “Jim” enjoys his free trip to israhell.

      To hell with a Glock. I think all Border Patrol Agents should be armed with a .44 magnum Desert Eagle and a full auto 7.62 X 51. Any one attacking with lethal force officers charged with protecting the US boarders should be viewed as an enemy. If they will kill or maim Border Patrol Officers then harming US civilians would be no problem for them.

        Damn it man. Ever thought about moving israel they could use your dumb ass.

      Why did you choose to report an almost 1year old report NOW in the midst of angst over the Invasion of the Mob–to stir the pot to higher angst in order to create real warfare in this country that will only kill numerous more? This posting now is reckless and raises great suspicion of your motives. A COMPLETELY IRRESPONSIBLE ACT YOU SHOULD BE SANCTIONED FOR.

        You got it. Too.

      Now we have low life murders running free in America, No justice for this brave boarder officer!

      The USA could stop the invasion if they wanted to. For starts, zero anchor babies, no free anything and invaders will will face the wrath of being an invader.

      The fact is they pay them to come here and pay them to live here.

      Trump could stop this but he won’t and I supported him. It is all a con job, I think now.

      Trump could have funded the wall with a go fund me page of his own and the wall would be built. Just offer the American people a stock to purchase with dividend paid to the people who fund the wall based on the savings. I am in.

      The politicians all want division so they can stay living like Gods,.

      This is an invasion. Not a migration. The invaders should be met with deadly force and turned back or killed. There is no third way…

      Democrats coach people to attack the police , remember Ferguson Missouri
