The immigrant aunt of recently killed Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez told that she supports Trump’s border wall and asked how many more agents have to die before we secure our border. The agent’s father told the paper that he saw his son’s wounds on his head and believed that his son had been attacked.
The aunt was identified as a former illegal immigrant who now holds a green card and the father was identified as having been born in Mexico and now being a U.S. citizen. He reportedly came to the U.S. as a temporary migrant construction worker.
Agent Martinez’s death and the severe injuries to another agent have sparked intense concerns across the political spectrum. Fellow Border Patrol agents believe the agents were attacked by illegal aliens and federal agencies are staying tight-lipped and refusing to rule out anything or to share any meaningful information on the matter. Breitbart Texas broke the news that one agent had died and another hospitalized in severe condition. This outlet also first reported on the allegations from agents on the ground that the agents had been attacked.
Caitlin Dickerson of the thoughtfully interviewed the slain agent’s family members and identified the incident as an “apparent attack.” She wrote:
She also quoted the agent’s father and wrote, “What I don’t like is at night, there is only one person,” he said, speaking in Spanish. Referring to his son’s attackers, he said: “I think they put a trap.”
The piece quoted Agent Martinez’s aunt:
The report asserted that the family of Agent Martinez contained members with a wide variety of views on immigration matters. The father told that Agent Martinez was very proud to protect his country, but at times felt conflicted about arresting so many Latinos.
