A Terrible tragedy happened yesterday after one Border Patrol agent lost his life and his partner is transferred to a hospital in a critical condition in the Big Bend Sector of Texas.
Almost immediately, President Trump vowed to bring to justice those who are responsible for the death of the 36-year-old border agent Rogelio Martinez.
Late Sunday, Trump tweeted:“We will seek out and bring to justice those responsible.”
Also, he vowed to build the wall on the southern border. “We will, and must, build the Wall!”

Texas Senator Ted Cruz also paid his respect. In a statement, he wrote: “This is a stark reminder of the ongoing threat that an unsecure border poses to the safety of our communities and those charged with defending them.”
“We are grateful for the courage and sacrifice of our border agents who have dedicated their lives to keeping us safe. I remain fully committed to working with the Border Patrol to provide them with all the resources they need to safeguard our nation,” he added.
Gov. Greg Abbot wrote: “Our resources must be increased to prevent these attacks in the future.”
Customs and Border Protection officials stated that Agent Rogelio Martinez and his partner responded to activity on Interstate 10 near the border in Texas.
In a press release, the officials said: “Agent Martinez’s partner reported that they were both injured and in need of assistance. Responding agents provided immediate medical care, and transported both agents to a local hospital.”
According to the National Border Patrol Council, a group of illegal aliens ambushed two agents and beat them with rocks, killing Agent Rogelio Martinez. The second agent was hospitalized.
Whoever did this, need to be held accountable for it! So, President Trump, track them down and prosecute them to the fullest whoever is responsible for this murder.
However, the blood of every border patrol agent that has been killed or injured on the southern border should be in the hands of every Democrat and Republicans that support open borders. They allow illegals to break federal laws and encourages them while not supporting nor protecting the border patrol agents.
Build the Wall! The People called for it.
And the blood of Americans calls out for it!
