Border Patrol Agent Killed for Night Vision Gear
July 26, 2011
U.S. Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas was ambushed and killed by five smugglers seeking to steal his night-vision goggles, according to a second suspect who has provided details of the crime in a plea agreement.
Emilio Gonzales pleaded guilty to murder of a federal officer in court and faces life in prison when he is sentenced Oct. 17. The suspects had lost night-vision goggles they use in smuggling operations, and were seeking a second pair.
Agent Robert Rosas spotted a suspicious group in the remote Campo area near the Mexican border July 23, 2009. He called for backup but when the suspicious group split up, Rosas went after some suspects by himself.

Don't worry, the CFR put out a document in 2005 that noted by 2010 they wanted a security perimeter around all of North America and free movement within that perimeter. Soon we won't have borders of the U.S., we'll have a North American security perimeter as they continue to merge us with Canada and Mexico (before anyone says different, the Mexican government said twice that is what they are doing with the Security and Prosperity Agreement).

Facing possible life in prison when they finally get around to sentencing him in October? He SHOULD be facing the death penalty even if he did plead guilty. That's nice, put him prison where he will be a hero to his fellow criminal slugs. Meanwhile the family, friends and co-workers of Agent Rosas are still trying to deal with their loss. Maybe he can get paroled after we all become one big friendly continent without silly little technicalities such as borders.

Another American murdered by Mexican criminals. Now they get a free ride for the rest of their lifes. Health care, education, food, shelther, a rood over their heads. Probably intereptures and social workers for their familes. Will the familes get hardship visas to visit these scum?Will the American taxpayer food the bill?
Interesting that the Mexican government can't control it's criminals but wants the United States to void it's Constituion visa via the 2nd amendment and control it's law abiding citizens/

The punishment should match the crime. The suspect should be executed.
Agencies today choose not to seek the death penalty due to the appeal process, money and no doubt to get the suspect to confess by promising that he won't be executed.

There is no justice in the justice system and the lady is damn welll blind.

Other reports indicated that all the perps involved had long criminal records and apparently had been deported several times.
However, I am not concerned. President Obama has promised to secure our borders. And his promises are as good as gold, yes?
Tom @ 7/28/2011 11:38 AM
Judy- I believe this administration claims that the border is secure so don't worry be happy. However, I have found it wise not to use credible and Obama in the same sentence.
concerned @ 8/15/2011 9:25 AM
the government is spending millions of dollars to have our trooops over seas securing other countries when they should worry about the threat in our back yard. bring the troops home and secure our borders. federal agents and local and state police officers are getting killed and cartells are paying these people for each kill
