Two Hudspeth County TX residents were arrested and charged for shooting two illegal aliens, one of whom died. The FBI and Texas Department of Public Safety are investigating the incident, while Democrats and the liberal news media are accusing everyone who believes in border security of being anti-immigrant.
According to reports, a group of 13 Mexican immigrants had crossed the U.S.-Mexico border on Tuesday, Sept. 27, to drink out of a reservoir south of Sierra Blanca, TX. A passing pickup truck stopped and backed up near the migrants. The illegal aliens claim someone in the truck yelled out in Spanish, “Come out you sons of bitches, little asses.”
An arrest affidavit says Michael Sheppard of Sierra Blanca, then got out of the truck and fired two rounds, killing a man, and injuring a woman in the group.
This incident is creating sympathy for illegal aliens among Democrats and the liberal news media. Congressman Joaquin Castro from San Antonio and Texas gubernatorial candidate Robert O’Rourke have released statements saying the shooting is the result of anti-immigrant politics.
While over 2 million illegal aliens have crossed the border in the past 19 months, this incident will be used by the Democrats and liberal news media as political cover for the border crisis. While U.S. citizens have had lives lost and property damaged, they will be villainized as racists.
Illegal immigration and the border crisis now have martyrs for the liberals and the leftists to rally around.
