    Man shot by BP agents near Santa Teresa charged with drug trafficking

    EL PASO, Texas -- A man who was shot by Border Patrol agents after allegedly running over an agent with his vehicle has been charged with drug trafficking, an FBI spokesman said.

    Raul Hernandez Arvizu has been released from a hospital and will now face additional charges of assault on a federal officer and felony re-entering of the country.

    He had previously served a 30-month stint in federal prison for drug smuggling and was then deported back to Mexico.

    On Feb. 20, Border Patrol agents tried to stop a pickup truck driven by Arvizu when Arvizu allegedly ran over an agent. At least one other agent at the scene opened fire, hitting Arvizu at least once.

    The agent who was run over had non-life threatening injuries.

    The agents involved in the incident have been placed on administrative duty.

    I hope that the border agents don't get charged with interfering with a moving vehicle...

    Too bad the shots weren't better placed.

    And whiners and sheeple in the border states say "It's all overblown".....

    Some civic leaders along the Texas-Mexico border are beginning to speak out against a request by Texas Gov. Rick Perry for federal troops to protect American communities from the drug wars in Mexico.
    They are blind, ignorant, illerate, or worried about tourist dollars. Sheeeesh....

    He should probably get a stiffer sentence as a repeat offender too! Repeatedly.......

    Cool

    OK, I'm going to be lazy and not look it up.
    I've heard said that the illegal entry across our border by a 'foreigner' is a civil violation (such as a traffic ticket) and I've heard it is a felony.
    Is there a border agent on this forum or someone else that knows exactly what kind of violation it really is?
    Or does it only become a felony if they're carrying contraband or a weapon?

    We need to spend extra money training our agents to shoot better under stress. Now we have to pay, AGAIN, to take care of this scumbag.
