A Border Patrol agent was killed this week while engaging in a high speed chase with illegal immigrants.
The crisis at the border has been ongoing since Biden entered office and it’s only getting worse.
This was a tragedy that did not have to happen.
FOX News reports:
US Border Patrol agent killed in high-speed chase of illegal immigrant group
A 38-year-old Border Patrol agent was killed in a high-speed pursuit of a group of illegal immigrants in Mission, Texas on Wednesday.
U.S. Border Patrol has not confirmed the identity of the agent, but federal sources say the man was a father of two children. The agent was pursuing a group of migrants on an ATV when he crashed into a closed fence at high speed, the sources told Fox News.
The agent was tracking the group of migrants at roughly 1 a.m. on Wednesday when the crash occurred. Authorities say other agents found him unresponsive and immediately attempted life-saving efforts and requested an EMS. The agent was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Border Patrol did not immediately respond to a request for more details from Fox News Digital.
“The death of an agent who died while securing our nation’s border is a tremendous loss for our organization and our nation,” US Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz said in a statement, according to NewsNation. “Our prayers are with his family and co-workers during this difficult time.”
The agent’s death comes just one day after President Biden faced heavy criticism for skipping out on visiting the U.S.-Mexico border during his trip to Arizona on Tuesday.
Here’s Biden in Arizona yesterday saying there are more important things than the border:

Reporter: “Why would you visit our state and not visit the border?”
