Border Patrol Agent Assaulted By Illegal Migrant Cartel Informer
President Joe Biden’s failure on the border hit a new low after reports emerged that a suspected cartel migrant informer assaulted and bloodied a border patrol agent at the southern border.
According to Breitbart News, the suspected Mexican cartel informant brutally assaulted and bit the Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol agent after crossing the border from Mexico. The suspect had the word “Rata” branded on his forehead. Reports suggest that the suspect may have been branded with rata —which translates to rat in English— because he was an informer.

Former Texas Republican congresswoman Mayra Flores shared images of the bloodied agent and the suspected cartel informant, asking for prayers for the men and women in uniform.
“This is the type of violence that is being exerted on Border Patrol Agents by those who don’t want to be apprehended,” wrote Flores, who is married to a Border Patrol agent. “The suspect was encountered by Border Patrol near McAllen, Texas. The suspect was labeled a rat by the cartels and fought against the agent until the backup arrived. Please pray for our men and women in uniform.”

The border agent sustained a bite wound to his thigh during the attack, which occurred in the Texas Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector. Another photo shows a puncture wound on the agent’s upper arm, with blood stains on his uniform.
According to a Breitbart News source, assaults on border agents are becoming dangerous because fewer Border Patrol agents are out on patrol.
“Most Border Patrol agents are dealing with the thousands of migrants crossing each day who willingly surrender,” the source explained. “Those migrants are not combative. The ones who are trying to get away or are involved in human and drug smuggling are the danger. If you tangle with one of them, the likelihood of having any quick backup nearby is almost zero.”
