U.S. Border Patrol in Texas came under fire from a shooter in Mexico for at least the second time in recent days, according to reports.

The harrowing incident unfolded on Monday near the Rio Grande in Starr County.

Agents were in the process of apprehending illegal aliens when gunfire erupted across the river.

“Shots were fired from Mexico in the direction of Border Patrol agents during the apprehension of migrants in the area adjacent to the Rio Grande,” a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) spokesperson told Border Report.

“No one was injured in the incident and shots were not returned.”

A similar attack reportedly took place on January 1 near Roma, Texas.

“A Border Patrol agent was shot at from across the river in Mexico on New Year’s Day while he was apprehending a migrant who had crossed illegally near Roma, TX. Bullets hit agents vehicle, but he wasn’t hurt. CBP and FBI now investigating,” Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin reported last week.

2021 was the deadliest year on record for Border Patrol with 15 agents dying in the line of duty.


It’s official: America is now in a civil war.
