  • The shooting was reported about 9:15 p.m. Thursday on Shockey Truck Trail southeast of the San Diego Sheriff Department's Campo substation, according to the Sheriff's Department.

    The agent was working with other agents to track suspected illegal immigrants or drug smugglers when the group being followed dispersed and the agent went off into the darkness by himself, Border Patrol agent Daryl Reed said Friday morning.

    A short time later, the agent was found lying gravely injured on the ground, Reed said.

  • I wish more peope in this country knew the frequency with which crimes like this occur. Those of us living closer to the border (and especially those of us who personally know some of the Border Control agents) know all too well how dangerous the illegal border crossings frequently turn out to be. It's not just the drugs, but the rapes, theft and violent attacks that rarely make it into the media. It's appalling how little of the crime committed by illegals gets reported to the general public.

  • Something needs to be done, because even though I'm in SC, I've heard about how bad things are, and how Immigration patrols are facing danger now more than ever. And while I agree with the concept of trying to improve the quality of life my family and I have, I agree that it should be done legally.
