Trump Promises Justice for Murdered Border Patrol Officer

(The Washington Examiner) President Trump promised to bring justice to whoever killed a Border Patrol agent and injured another in an incident in Texas Sunday and used the opportunity to call to build his southern border wall.

“Border Patrol Officer killed at Southern Border, another badly hurt. We will seek out and bring to justice those responsible. We will, and must, build the Wall!” Trump tweeted.

Protection officials stated in a press release Agent Rogelio Martinez and his partner responded to activity on Interstate 10 near the border in Texas.

“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,” the statement said.

Martinez died from his injures at the hospital and his partner remains in the hospital…

    Though certainly not doable, it would be nice if every liberal Democrat an rino supporting illegal amnesty be forced to attend this brave souls funeral in order to gain a first-hand understanding of the threat this vermin poses this country!

    • Gregg Parker

      I was thinking more burying them up to their neck along the border until they reconsider the importance Americans put on the issue. They don’t have to live in the neighborhoods they infiltrate… we do.

      • Doug001

        Stack them up like cord-wood, then we’d have a wall to be proud of!

        • Gregg Parker

          You have good idea there.

    • slk5

      flake and the rest are sick, and only think about bringing down trump no matter the consequences!!!

      • richjack4

        Absolutely! Always easy to act tough when you have nothing to lose.

        • Michael G. Wilson

          Just as there are no atheists in fox holes ether!

      • Doug001

        No it’s not just Trump, they are Globalists, they want a world without borders, where anyone can go anywhere. They want one government for the planet and they want to run it.

        • slk5

          and the first thing they’ll do if they gain control, is reduce the population!!!

    • Michael G. Wilson

      It wouldn’t mean a thing to them, since they all believe that anyone that joins any of the branch’s of our military and or any of our law enforcement services, are idiots, and since they/we, signed up knowing full well the risks, then they/ we get just what we idiots deserved!

  • Gregg Parker

    Build that wall!!!

  • John McClain

    I personally don’t care what kind of “wall” is put up, the issue is choosing to control our borders, and be “a Nation”, or continue as we have, and become part of a default conglomeration, and no longer be a nation, we’ve long since ceased being “a Republic, having fallen to a crony-corporatism form, and acting fascist in law making, and in the abuse of any nation we choose.
    “Anti-disestablish-mentarianist”, one who fights the disestablishment of one’s Nation’s natural state as it was established by the rule of law, first applied against those fighting the removal of “the Church of England”, but exactly correct for those who believe in American first principles.

      Thank you for your service! That dog has you well trained I see, just as mine has me! 1st ARMY 66-69.

  • TheRealLibertarian

    If they really wanted to see why we need a wall, head down to El Salvador or any of the Central American countries where MS-13 rules….If the American news reported half of what goes on down there, i.e. MS-13 firebombing the compounds where the police and their families live, rampant robbery and murder, most liberals would be screaming for a border wall. Trump was 100% correct when he said that these countries are NOT sending their best and brightest…they don’t care about our laws when they get here because they aren’t having to follow the law to get here. No more DACA or DREAMER amnesty! Close our borders and make them enter the legal way so that we know who they are and what their intentions for coming here are! Make them attend the funeral for these fallen agents, then ship them to Central America to live without their body guards and fancy houses and see how long it takes them to change their minds….

    • Maxine Albritton

      now get congress to pass the bills necessary no daca,dreamers, and the wall. and no sanctuary cities. and definitely no funding for such

      • TheRealLibertarian

        Good luck with that Maxine! Even if we got rid of all the incumbent crooks, we would have a new batch that would run on empty promises as well. Half of the ones there now oppose bills or anything else they “feel” like, or just because Trump might think it’s a good idea.

  • William Hutchinson

    I am sick and tired of reading about all of killings at the borders of the law officials protecting our country while the dipsticks in Washington do nothing to protect our country but say its ok for the illegals to come here and feed off of our welfare while laughing in our faces while we as citizens work our butts off to pay the bill.

    • Scuttlebutt

      Me & thee William. If our Country didn’t have the ACLU, we could do the job they were meant to do—-keep illegals out of the USA. BUT—along with the BLM group & other associations like them, our hands are tied & we the people can’t do a thing about it:(:(:(

      • Michael G. Wilson

        It is coming to the point that if “WE” don’t do what is really needing to be done, there will be no reason to do anything! That’s because there will not be anything of America left to protect and defend, now will there be! The only real question left unanswered is, “Are there enough true Americans left to step up and do just what needs to be done?”

      • Alfalfa

        We can do something, but it takes a set of balls.

    • Alfalfa

      They are not dipsticks, they are dipshits. They all say they are for the
      People, they are not. They only serve themselves and fellow dipshits

  • Chat1

    Build the wall!

  • RealAmerican407

    Liberals will ALWAYS distort reality to fit their twisted world view.

    No matter how much proof and evidence is put in their face they will always find a way to rationalize and justify. This usually always involves pointing the finger of blame and shame at conservatives and Republicans in general.

    • Maxine Albritton

      I have heard this argument too. It is “|well we have some nasty people in our society and these are basically nice people who have some that go wrong like we do.”? Not the same in my book, need the wall.

      • RealAmerican407

        They are experts at responding with whataboutism’s and moral equivalencies.

  • Cliona

    How many more have to perish at the hands of this vermin? How many more billions do we taxpayers have to shell out to illegal parasites while some of our own children go to bed hungry? I am sick of liberal judges blocking executive orders to clean up this mess. Let them foot the bill.


    And the democrats and the lying media still want to keep our borders open and let anyone enter the country. The Democrats are the most racist, bigoted, lying, hypocritical and demented, communistic of all U.S. political parties in history. And these are their good points.

  • WVF

    We’re tired of talk, Mr. President, either build the wall or shut up.

    • Esilda Rios

      I wish it were that easy, if so he would have done it already. We have a do nothing Congress controlled by the DEM and they’ll pay people off if that is what it takes. REP’s are for themselves, following the DEM playbook. We have to get funding and the votes. That’s the truth! We have to get rid of the RINO’s, especially Ryan and McConnell.

      • WVF

        I never said it was easy, but the President said he would build the wall, and we were led to believe that it could be done in less than two years.  They’ve put up about six prototype panels, but that’s all I’ve been made aware of, there’s still about 700 miles of wall needed.  I fully support President Trump, but that border agent, Martinez, should never have been killed with rocks.  This is sickening!

  • Robert Early

    If we would just start shooting the invaders, one or two might die; but then the invasion would cease. Guaranteed. Why spend.many billions on a wall, when $1 of ammo would do the trick?

    • Blogengeezer

      A few border states have used that method over the last generation or ten, to great detrimental effect.

      Today, during fits of absolute ‘Great Society’ logic, following the disaster of an Internationally inserted, globalist Left president and administration for the last eight years previous, we are stuck with the current ACLU mandated DOJ, monitoring, micro-managing ‘human rights’ in every police dept across the USA.

      Venezuela was this hemisphere’s ‘canary in the coal mine’ of national socialism. Too bad, we as a nation of increasingly secular humanists, did not pay attention to, naively ignored ….history. …. by agenda.

    • Jimmy the Greek

      $1.00 for a box of ammo . what you going to shoot them with a BB gun ?

      • Robert Early

        So far, I have 10,000 30 caliber rounds available; however, I don’t believe I will need over two at a cost of about $1. The rest I plan to use on liberals, when the coming civil war becomes official.

  • Bearcat

    The people here in the U.S. that doesn’t care about the wall or whether there is illegals here should have to support a family or 2 out of their on pockets and no support from the country and see how they would like it and because Calf. want’s to be a Sanctuary state send all the Illegals there with help

  • Deplorable Lanie

    Suggest that to President Trump.

  • mekatie

    Hey President Trump, why don’t we string them up on our new fences. I am so sick of them trying to get in the USA, or use them for target practice. Democrats I doubt you will get them for new voters.

  • Kenny Albert

    Let we the citizens shoot every last illegal.

  • Yosemite Sam

    Build the WALL, Build it STRONG, Build it TALL . . . Thank the Lord for our great president Donald Trump. MAGA!

  • Louie Rey

    Well, at least this murder is directly attributable to a potential illegal alien from Mexico unlike the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. You remember him don’t you? He was killed with the use of one of the guns that Hussein and his pathetic Attorney General Eric Holder allowed into Mexico in the “Fast & Furious” initiative. That being said the wall needs to go up immediately. And there’s no anti-immigrant bias on my part as I happen to be Hispanic. No, I’m not anti-immigrant I’m PRO-American.

  • Esilda Rios

    That might help.
