Border Patrol Agent Killed by Fleeing Car

A border patrol agent was struck and killed by an illegal driving a car who entered the US illegally:

Witnesses told the Yuma Sun newspaper that agents were chasing a Hummer and a Ford pickup on Interstate 8 when the vehicles turned into the dunes and fled toward Mexico. The agent was trying to place spike strips in their path and was struck by the Hummer, they said.

“Mexican authorities are using every means at their disposal to arrest the people responsible” for the slaying, said a statement released Saturday night by Mexico’s Foreign Relations department.

I don’t get any comfort from what these Mexican officials say. I don’t trust them as far as I can throw them.
