This is the type of violence that is being exerted on Border Patrol Agents by those who don’t want to be apprehended. The suspect was encountered by Border Patrol near McAllen, Texas, and was labeled a rat by the cartels. Please pray for our men and women in uniform 🙏 pic.twitter.com/4ns0ZvbhUf

They just only come here for a better life.
And to attack!
A former Republican congresswoman from Texas has posted a shocking photograph of a bloodied Border Patrol agent – claiming he was attacked by a migrant along the US-Mexico border.
Mayra Flores, 37, the wife of a Border Patrol agent, shared the gory image of the fed in her social media accounts Sunday, and described what she claimed led to his injuries.
“This is the type of violence that is being exerted on Border Patrol Agents by those who don’t want to be apprehended,” she wrote, adding that agents encountered the alleged attacker near McAllen, Texas.
“The suspect was labeled a rat by the cartels and fought against the agent until backup arrived,” Flores wrote. “Please pray for our men and women in uniform.”
The former lawmaker and current candidate, who was the first Mexican-born woman to serve in the House, also posted an image of the wounded migrant, whose forehead apparently bore a marking etched by a Mexican drug cartel.
In July, Flores launched a comeback bid after losing her seat to Democratic Rep. Vicente Gonzalez.
She is running on a platform to empower agents, strengthen border security and better protect children being trafficked.
“Our values align with the Republican Party. Our values align. I am pro-God, pro-life, pro-family. The Democrat Party stands against everything we stand for,” she said at her campaign launch, according to Politico.
Honestly… “they are violent though!” is just another dumb Republican excuse for not addressing the issue.
Most of them obviously aren’t violent, so it just rings as dishonest.
The problem is that they are Mexicans and they don’t belong in our country.
Drugs, violence, gangs, even the economic devastation that all of this low wage unskilled labor causes – these are all just side issues.
The main issue is that they’re racially different and don’t belong in our country.
But Republicans are too cowardly to ever say the truth, so they just do weasel stuff that comes across as very weaselly.
Obviously, everyone understands that the majority of them are not violent. Even in that much-hyped case where an illegal immigrant shot some random white woman to death, it was an accident.
Mexicans (etc.) are more violent than whites, but nowhere near as violent as blacks.
It’s a weasel argument designed to avoid the racial issue.
