Border Patrol Agents in South Texas Murdered, Raped & Assaulted At Least 10 People

Border Patrol agents have murdered, raped, kidnapped or viciously attacked at least 10 people in South Texas over the past four years.

In September, an agent in the Laredo sector, told investigators he had fatally shot four prostitutes during a 12-day killing rampage. Another Laredo agent, Ronald Anthony Burgos Aviles, 29, has been charged with fatally stabbing his girlfriend and their 1-year-old son.

In March 2014, Agent Esteban Manzanares sexually assaulted a teenager and viciously attacked her friend and mother while they tried to seek asylum. Manzanares never stood trial because he killed himself.

The cases have prompted serious questions about the hiring practices of agents and whether the federal agency missed red flags.

Canadian Woman Slapped Border Patrol Officer Across Face After Being Denied Entrance into U.S.

A Canadian woman got her wish after slapping a Border Patrol agent across the face for denying her entrance into the U.S. to visit Niagara Falls.

Tianna Natasha McPherson, 40, insisted she was an American citizen and told the agent she wanted to be charged under U.S law.

Now she’s facing up to eight years in prison after U.S. authorities charged her with assaulting, resisting or impeding a U.S. officer.

“The defendant stated that she wanted to go before an American jude, and grabbed her baggage, and began walking towards the exit of the lobby” at the Niagara Falls International Rainbow Bridge between Ontario and New York state, Newsweek reports

Border officials refused to let her into America because of “derogatory information” during past visits into the U.S.

“What if I punch you in the face?” McPherson allegedly asked the officer.

At that point, McPherson “open-hand slapped the officer on the left side of her face,” according to the statement.

McPherson, a native of Kitchener, Ontario, is scheduled to appear for a detention hearing on Thursday.

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul was mowing his grass outside his Kentucky home when he came under a brutal attack by a neighbor Friday.

The attack left the Republican with five broken ribs, lung contusions and injuries to his face. 

His neighbor, Rene Boucher, 59, was charged with one count of fourth-degree assault causing minor injury and has since been released on bond, Reuters reports

“Senator Paul has five rib fractures including three displaced fractures. This type of injury is caused by high velocity severe force,” Doug Stafford, a senior adviser to Paul, said in a statement, according to multiple media reports.

“It is not clear exactly how soon he will return to work, as the pain is considerable as is the difficulty in getting around, including flying,” the reports quoted Stafford as saying. He added that the senator’s type of injury could lead to life-threatening injuries.

Authorities said it wasn’t immediately clear what prompted Paul’s neighbor to enter the senator’s property in a gated community near Bowling Green and tackle him from behind.

The FBI is on the hunt for a man accused of making “illicit sexual contact” with a girl during Monday’s wreathing-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. 

Authorities said the unidentified man did not know the girl and “repeatedly inappropriately touched” the victim while standing in the crowd.

The bureau described the man as Hispanic, between 50 and 60 years old, with ”short, spikey, grey and black hair.”

The incident happened around 11 a.m. while the man and girl were standing in a crowd during the ceremony.

The FBI released a photo of the suspect and is asking anyone with information about the man’s identity to call the bureau’s Washington Field Office at 202-278-2000.

An undocumented immigrant assaulted and nearly stabbed a Border Patrol agent near Tucson on Tuesday night.

The attack happened as the Border and Air and Marine Operations were responding to a report of roughly 10 migrants walking in the desert, the Arizona Republic reports.

Using a helicopter as a guide, agents located the group.

When an agent tried to stop a fleeing migrant, he was nearly stabbed when the man pulled out a knife. The agent’s handheld radio was stabbed, potentially saving him.

The co-pilot of a helicopter helped subdue and arrest the man.

The agent wasn’t seriously injured.
