Just an illegal bringing in drugs and gang warfare.

You know, “doing the jobs Americans won’t do”.

Lindsey Graham would like to have offered him free health care via the U.S. taxpayer. Oh, and amnesty, too.

Mizz Lyndsey would have lifted his skirt for the guy. It’s a lonely job, now that his life partner John has to pretend he’s a conservative...

Nice shooting Officer. Finally an agent doing what they get paid to do. This is one illegal that wont have to be deported again.

BANG! Down goes another scumbag.

(If that line looks familiar it’s because I use it for ALL cases like this, and for “homeowner kills intruder” stories. You know...the happy stories.)

What a shame! One more illegal entry and de la Cruz would have been eligible for his “Big Sis” merit badge.

Somehow the news reports simply forget to mention that in the fight, the illegal was able to take away the Agent’s baton and attack the Agent with it. The Agent had no choice but to shoot.
