Border Patrol Agent Robert Wimer Rosas Killed, Feds Arrest 3 Suspects in Connection with Murder


A manhunt is under way for those responsible for the murder of 30 year old border patrol agent Robert Wimer Rosas. Law enforcement agencies are receiving leads from both Mexico and the United States.  The suspects responsible for Rosas’ death are believed to be injuried and authorities have alerted hospitals on both sides of the border to be alert for patients with suspicious or unexplained injuries.

Robert Wimer Rosas, Rest in Peace

Robert Wimer Rosas was killed Thursday night when responding to a suspected illegal border crossing near Campo, CA. Rosas was shot in the head and body and was dead when backup agents arrived.

Authorities said at least one other agent in the field heard gunshots after Rosas left to respond to the call and couldn’t reach Rosas on his radio afterward.

Rosas was the first Border Patrol agent to die in a shooting in more than a decade, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page Inc., which tracks fallen officers using information provided by law enforcement agencies. Another agent, Luis Aguilar, was intentionally run over by a fleeing man driving a drug-laden Hummer in January 2008.

Three people have been arrested by federal authorities in connection with the murder of 30 year old border patrol agent Robert Wimer Rosas.

Agents with the Department of Homeland Security surrounded the hospital and arrested two men and one woman.

At least one suspect wanted for the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent was reportedly injured during the attack and may seek medical attention on either side of the U.S.-Mexico border, authorities said Friday.  Authorities said they traced the cell phone of one of the people arrested.

As stated by the Examiner, the death of Border Patrol Agent Rosas either by illegals or drug smugglers underscores the need for a better and tighter security control with the American-Mexican border.

This tragedy underscores the need for a better fence and tighter control over the United States Border with Mexico. It also signals an escalation of the violence on this side of the fence or lack thereof. The area where the agent was killed is still only protected by the decades old ten-foot fence that smugglers and illegal immigrants have been scaling or crawling under since it was installed.

      But we are simply racists to not want illegals in this country even though time after time illegals kill American citizens either coming across the border or later while driving drunk in the USA.

      Illegal Aliens are lawbreakers by definition. Why are they
      permitted to be here? Who stands to gain? We appreciate
      the same races here legally don’t we? It’s the cost we are
      asked to bear to support foreign citizens who are breaking our
      laws that is not right. No one in their right mind would
      consider saving $1 a head on lettuce from illegal farm
      slave laborers and not notice the hidden $10,000+ cost
      of supporting that laborer and his family while here.
      Look to the government to disover the unconscionable
      justifications it has in mind to serve itself at our expense.

      Another helping of Free Money if you please, thanks!

      This country is never going to be safe as long as our government keep allowing ILLEGAL MEXICANS TO ENTER THIS COUNTRY!Now its past time for them to put a stop to this and then maybe the economy will really start to heal and innocent American Citizens will be a lot safer.Its not right for the Mexican government to send their poor accross the border to the United States in order to find work and receive public assiatance benefits not meant for them but for U.S.Citizens.Mexico is not a poor country and by their citizens living and working here illegally,have hurt our economy and helped the Mexican economy via the money sent back home to Mexico.They are doing this while the American Citizens pay for their food and medical care.
