YUMA, Ariz. Last night, Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents and a CBP pilot had rocks thrown at them when they tried to arrest a subject who claimed to have been part of the migrant caravans. On Friday night, at approximately 5:45 p.m., Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents discovered footprints from a subject who had illegally crossed from Mexico into the United States just east of the Andrade, Calif. port of entry. Agents radioed for a CBP Air and Marine helicopter to assist and it responded a short time later. The agents tracked the suspect for almost a mile until he was encountered near a tree. The male suspect climbed up into the tree, set it on fire, and began to throw rocks at agents on the ground as well as at the CBP helicopter. None of the agents nor the helicopter was struck.
The subject eventually came down from the tree and was taken into custody. He was determined to be a 31-year-old Honduran national illegally in the U.S. The subject told arresting agents that he had been part of one of the migrant caravans that had been covered by the media in Mexico recently. He was transported to the Yuma Central Processing Center. The Winterhaven Fire Department responded and extinguished the fire.
During processing, the subject was found to have several previous arrests in Florida as well as a previous deportation from the U.S. on June 4, 2018. The subject is being presented for prosecution and removal proceedings.

These are not the best nor the brightest that Honduras wants to dump on our society. Future DemocRATs, you know.
Well, no need to track him any further. Just keep him up there. Being stupid should hurt!
Lucky not to be deceased.
I have a sticker testifying that I contributed to the Yuma Prison foundtion.

Burn the Tree Your In,,,
The best and Brightest.
I’m sure he only went on this trip because every other time coming through, he just wallzed over the border ...no problem.
THIS PRESIDENT SAYS “NO”!
Gitmo _isn’t_ US soil, it’s officially leased. That’s the point of Gitmo. Perfect place to keep him.
The agents tracked the suspect for almost a mile until he was encountered near a tree. The male suspect climbed up into the tree, set it on fire, and began to throw rocks at agents on the ground as well as at the CBP helicopter.
Lets see, he climbed up a tree and then set the tree on fire. Would have been more interesting to just stand by and see what happened next.
NO !! DO NOT feed, clothe, shelter or medicate this person!!!
This border thing is more than a three ring circus. Calling common sense . . . where are you? Shut it down, now!
Hang him from the tree.
While its still on fire.
Common sense hasn’t posted since 2002
Richard Gatling was one of our best inventors.
Not the sharpest tool in the shed.
