The agenda-driven media is predictable in how much energy, if any, it will expend on stories and the report of a female border patrol agent being violently assaulted by an illegal migrant while being taken into custody is garnering little — a remarkable occurrence given the wall-to-wall national coverage the false story of border patrol agents “whipping” illegal immigrants from Haiti received, even drawing the attention of the Biden White House.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection released a statement saying the agent was attacked on Saturday while detaining the illegal immigrant and was injured on both her arms and face. The agent managed to call for backup and her attacker was arrested. She was transported to a medical clinic for treatment.
“On March 4, 2023, at approximately 4:00 a.m., a U.S. Border Patrol agent assigned to the Tucson Sector took a subject into custody near Foudy Road and State Route 92, after investigating the subject’s illegal entry into the U.S. While being placed in a service vehicle, the subject assaulted the agent, injuring the agent’s face and hands. Additional agents responded and took the suspect into custody,” the CBP said in a statement.
“The assaulted agent was transported for medical treatment. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating the assault on a federal officer. The Cochise County Sheriff’s Office is also investigating,” the statement continued.
NEW: Per federal sources, a female Border Patrol agent working solo was violently assaulted by a male illegal immigrant she was taking into custody in the Tucson, AZ sector early Saturday AM, leaving her with injuries.

U.S. Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, said “it’s time to end this” in a tweet: “It’s time to end this. I will not tolerate a @HouseGOP that does not end this. We have the power.”
Former Texas Congresswoman Mayra Flores, the first female Mexican-born member of the House, also took to Twitter to call for Congress to act.
“The Biden administration will do nothing to protect our Border Patrol Family. I am asking Congress to please end this, you have the power,” Flores tweeted.
Here’s a sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
Border Patrol agents get falsely accused of whipping illegal immigrants and Joe Biden condemns them.
An illegal immigrant violently assaults a female Border Patrol agent and Joe Biden says nothing.
