Two Border Patrol agents from the El Centro Sector were assaulted by illegal aliens near downtown Calexico early Friday morning.
According to Agent Keith A. Croxton, of the El Centro Sector Public Affairs Office, at approximately 2:30 a.m., agents were attempting to rescue three illegal aliens from the All American Canal, which is located approximately three miles west of the U.S. Port of Entry at Calexico, Calif., West, when the assaults occurred.
That area is one of our most dangerous areas when it comes to assaults on agents, Croxton said. They get rocked there quite frequently.

And by the time I post, this will likely be a duplicate, but I decided to post it just in case.

“Secure the Southern border”

SNIPPET: “Since President Felipe Calderon took office three years ago, there have been more than 28,000 violent deaths on the Mexican side of the U.S.-Mexican border due to drug cartel violence.
More than 900 U.S. Border Patrol agents have been assaulted this year. This includes the murder of Robert Rosas, who was on patrol near San Diego, Calif..
Drug cartel violence is a serious problem in Mexico. An Investors Business Daily editorial noted last month, Beheadings, stonings, car bombs and terrorist attacks speak to a lust for power every bit as implacable as that of the Afghanistans Taliban or insurgents in Iraq.
Unfortunately, the Obama administration continues to promote policies that fund the violence along the border.”

I’ll see your rock and raise you a BULLET!
