Border Patrol Agent Attacked and Almost Shot in Texas by Illegal Immigrant


An illegal alien on the U.S./Mexico border in Texas assaulted a Border Patrol agent, took his pistol and then allegedly attempted to shoot the agent. Breitbart Texas confirmed the agent is reporting in stable condition, despite a possible broken bone, according to the National Border Patrol Council.

Breitbart Texas spoke with Shawn Moran, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council today and was told that the episode serves as a reminder of the “dangers” constantly faced “on our nation’s borders.”

The incident began on Wednesday morning after two Border Patrol agents spotted some immigrants traveling near Encino, Texas.
