Border Patrol Agent from Big Bend Sector Killed in Line of Duty

Washington, DC...A U.S. Border Patrol agent has died as a result of injuries sustained while on patrol in the Big Bend Sector. Agent Rogelio Martinez and his Big Bend Sector partner were responding to activity while on patrol near Interstate 10, in the Van Horn Station area. Agent Martinez’s partner reported that they were both injured and in need of assistance. Responding agents provided immediate medical care, and transported both agents to a local hospital.




Big Bend Sector was later told that Agent Martinez expired from his injuries. His partner remains in the local hospital in serious condition.

Border Patrol agents from Big Bend Sector and the Culberson County Sheriff’s Department secured the scene. The Border Patrol’s Special Operations Group and agents from CBP’s Air and Marine Operations are searching the area for potential suspects or witnesses.

The Culberson County Sheriff’s Department, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Office of Inspector General, and CBP’s Office of Professional Responsibility are investigating.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Agent Martinez and his family, and with the agent who was injured.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.

    Murdered by illegal aliens - not "undocumented immigrants". Words mean things and you can't change reality by changing the words to dance around the issue.

The idiots couldn't drive and crashed, no illegals involved.

    Interesting idea but too bad you can't change the facts to make that story work.

    I like the idea of Turrets with .50 cal in the kill zone. Anyone caught shooting wildlife though will be prosecuted.
    An illegal might be able to jump a wall, but then according to the plans there will be a 75 foot perimeter of razor wire running along the fence line at a height not to exceed 8 feet.
    Imagine find one wrapped up in that and whipping out (a lost but not yours) your baton for him fighting back? Payback is a bytch
