In the Line of Duty

We were deeply shocked this morning to learn of the murder of a member of the DHS family: Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas was shot and killed last night in the line of duty while on patrol in San Diego County, California. DHS is working with the FBI and local law enforcement on the investigation, and a manhunt is underway for the gunmen who killed Agent Rosas.

The Secretary's statement from earlier today:

“I am deeply saddened by the tragic death of one of our own. Agent Robert Rosas was gunned down while protecting our nation’s Southwest border. This act of violence will not stand—nor will any act of violence against the Border Patrol. I have directed that the full resources of the Department assist in the investigation to find and bring to justice those responsible for this inexcusable crime.

My thoughts and condolences are with Agent Rosas’ family and his fellow agents at this difficult time. I want to commend those in the law enforcement and first responder community in Southern California for so quickly responding to the scene and attempting to save Agent Rosas’ life. His death is a vivid reminder that we are engaged in a serious effort to secure our border and that thousands of Border Patrol agents and other DHS employees risk their lives every single day to protect and defend our nation.”
CBP flags across the country are at half-staff today in Agent Rosas' honor. Our thoughts are with his family and all who knew him.

    This is a tragedy. Agent Rosas has been needlessly sacrificed to the enemy! If DHS was doing it's job, this brutal murder may have been avoided. Why are our agents so often patroling alone? It is very common for our border agents to carry out their dangerous shifts alone in their vehicles, under-armed and separated from the enemy by lines in the sand! The area of the California border with Mexico is covered in chaparall and rocky areas of refuge for the invaders. When will the US government FINALLY wake up to the threat that comes with open borders? We are a SOVEREIGN NATION. We should expect our country's borders to be protected from foreign invasion, as well as drug cartels and smugglers of various contraband. Even after the horror of Sept. 11, 2001, our greedy, self-serving leaders...now Obama & his crew, the usual suspects in Congress, Janet Napolitano's DHS, DoD and whatever other culprits I am forgetting, CHOOSE TO LEAVE OUR BORDERS WIDE OPEN TO ALL COMERS! I place the blame for the chaos at our borders squarely on the heads of those I have mentioned! Please deploy a strong, well-armed US military presence to our borders! We have put up with this insanity long enough!

    Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas was shot and killed last night in the line of duty while on patrol in San Diego County, and it is the fault of the incompetent DHS for not securing the border as WE the CITIZENS have been demanding for years. We need to secure the borders ... place our National guard on duty with bullets in their armament. No mickey mouse acts ... real bullets ... NOW!!!

    I was disgusted and upset about the death of another American at the hands of illegal aliens. Border Patrol Agent Rosas met his very untimely death simply because we have NO border security. How many more Americans must be raped, maimed or killed at the hands of illegals? Our Gangster Government continues to ignore these terrible statistics and view the invasion of our country as the cost of doing business. To American citizens, illegal aliens are far from Cheap (as in Cheap labor). Do what we're paying you to do, secure our borders.

    Please extend my sympathies to the family of Border Patrol Agent Robert Wimer Rosas, who was brutally murdered at age 30 in the line of duty on 23 July 2009. I have some understanding of the long-term consequences of losing a courageous officer.

    As a consequence of a drunk driver, I was never able to meet my paternal grandfather. Instead, at age 30 like Agent Rosas, he was killed in the line of duty about 14 years before I was born as a California Highway Patrol Officer. My father, 9 years old at the time, was traumatized by his father's death, which contributed to my father's death in 1986 at the young age of 57. I have visited memorials listing the name of Officer Leonard Nelson in Sacramento, California and in Washington, DC.

    The police of this once great nation used to have the border patrols backs and enforced the immigration laws on those that slipped by.

    No longer can they trust the criminals in the government for a hand or the support they need.

    It is certainly to late for this man and his family for the calvary to arrive. How about the next?

    I hope that the Homeland Security Department has a representative at this weeks LaRaza Convention in Chicago. Instead of listening to the propaganda about the wonders of illegal aliens, they should be arresting these people for entering our country illegally.

    Perhaps they can gather clues to help solve this weeks murder of Border Patrol Agent Rosas near San Diego instead of pandering to these criminal trespassers and act in collusion as they violate the civil rights of every American citizen.

    My heart is SO heavy regarding this tragedy, but I am MAD also! This is yet ANOTHER murder which could have been prevented if our politicians cared enough about U.S. Citizens to properly man our borders! How many more of our lawmen and citizens must fall before America takes this seriously? Herr Schwartnegger, Princess Pelosi, Boxer, etc- the blood of this fine young man is on your hands for not giving a darn!

    My heartfelt condolences to the Rosas family and the U.S. Border Patrol. We grieve with you.

    I am disgusted with the DHS in its address of border security, and now with the weakening of the 287g program. This father would still be alive if the borders had been totally secured and so many other citizens would still be alive had illegal immigration been stopped years ago.
    To weaken the 287g to only going after criminal illegals, and not the unlicensed driver is like pulling a bandage off one half of the wound while putting it on another. Blood still flows from the first half.
    The only comprehensive immigration reform should be to work with the community law enforcement to ENFORCE all laws on the books, starting with federal all the way down to the laws for the local dog catcher.
    The anger among legal immigrants is growing that these people get a free ride. They break a law by crossing the border, another by driving without a license and either work under the table so they don't pay taxes or steal an identity to work. Interesting that this country's remittances to Mexico are the second-largest contributor to their GDP.
    For ICE to no longer perform worksite raids is tantamount to the new globalism, a world without borders. Is that what Americans want? Not I and not about 80 percent of the population, some who have lost jobs, still try to pay taxes and mortgages and food bills, while illegals get jobs and every other social service tax dollars go for.
    DHS seems to be addressing the other half of the problem, not the problem in its entirety.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the family members of this brave agent. He is survived by a wife and two small children ages 2 and 11 months.

    This should never have happened. However, since the out of control policies of the former US Attorney for West Texas and his team charging law enforcement with crimes in the line of duty, the morals with in the ranks of the border patrol have not gotten any higher.

    Last year when Agent Aguilar was ran over in the dunes in California near Yuma, agents told reporters they were hesitant to fire their weapons because they DID NOT want to end up like Ramos, Compean, and Sheriff Deputy Gilmer Hernandez.

    The fact that congress and the past administrations have not done anything to really secure the southern border just puts blood on the hands of those who dont want a fence down there and who dont care about the american people. Too many in DC have been bought off by big businesses who want cheap foreign slave labor so that they dont have to pay an american citizen a decent living wage.

    Until we have leaders in DC who will tell lobbyists to get out and never come back and until we have leaders who have the nerve and guts to tell the corrupt Mexican government to keep their noses out of our business and how to run out country, IM afraid things like this will keep happening. Just look at Houston, Texas, it has LOST FIVE Officers in the last three years to illegal aliens. and they have another still in the hospital after being shot in the face in March. he is permanently blind in one eye and one side of his body is paralized.

    There are memorial pages set up on the internet for victims of murders by illegal aliens. the two pages I know of seem to have people added on EVERY WEEK...

    to the hussy who is leading DHS.... do america a favor and just quit. Your changing of the policies regarding ICE and who gets arrested and who doesnt at job sites are putting more americans at risk every day and because of this, your basically keeping jobs from americans that the illegals now have. THAT IS UNAMERICAN and thats NOT part of your job.
    Hey Janet, your in violation of the laws of the US constitution and other laws on the books. your job as well as the job of the president and congress is to PROTECT FROM INVASION both foreign and domestic. and right now on the foreign invasion, YOU SUCK

    Brave Border Patrol men & women have the toughest law enforcement job in the nation.

    Not only Businesses but Our own Government entice IA's to come here with their promise,year after year,of Amnesty.

    Border Patrol agents are constantly being harassed by IA's with rocks and other projectiles and even spat upon yet they know they must endure for fear of retaliation of our own Government and/or lawsuits from people who have no respect for our BP's or our laws.

    Did agent Rosas hesitate for fear of retaliation?

    God Bless our brave BP's and know we citizens understand the difficulty and danger you face everyday.

    My heartfelt condolences go out to Rosas family,especially his wife & his babies........

    - not only our entire society and America in general.
    - ..... Gee it doesn’t' get any worse.

    How many more have to die? 200, 500 or more?

    When will we see a flood of 20,000 border patrol agents or a few tanks to stop the drug war from penetrating our border?

    When will we see and end to the illegal immigration crisis?

    Enough of the political correctness and budget arguments.
    Not stopping this problem is costing much more than if we had stopped it in the first place.

    The upper 10% of the DHS brass has failed & should be fired.

    And as far as I'm concerned - indeed you're fired!!!

    What a sad day for America. Agent Rosas' death was inevitable, due to the lack of will & commitment from our Govt & DHS to enforce our borders. Those of us in So. CA have lived with this INVASION for years. Our govt. not only doesn't protect us, they seem bent on siding with the Mexican govt., La Raza, etc. against its own American citizens.

    My sincerest sympathies to the Rosas family...and all other BP Agents & their families who live in fear & wonder daily if DOING THEIR JOB will get them in legal trouble (like Agts. Ramos & Compean) or get them killed (like Agt. Rosas).

    I'm 66 yrs. old & every day I wake up & wonder what the hell is happening to
    my beloved country. Like many, my family has sacrificed & gone to war to protect our freedoms. (My career Marine officer husband to Vietnam & a son 2 years in Iraq.) WHILE HERE AT HOME WE DON'T SUPPORT the brave & dedicated Agts. protecting our borders.

    As far as I'm concerned the govt/DHS has Agt. Rosas' blood on their hands.
    I feel his tragic death is a result of so much corruption in DC & all the pandering & political favors to/from the Mexican govt, La Raza, etc.
    I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Most has been said already but after all of the dust has settled one thing emerges clearly. Unless most of the illegals self deport, (cut off benefits, jail those who hire them, etc.); and until the double fence is completed as Pres. Bush promised (but cleverly did not fund) then the lives of our citizens and border agents, as well as police are in jeopardy. And then there is the matter of the drugs and terrorists which we know are entering our country through the sieve which is our southern border.

    FOR WHATEVER REASON, FOLKS ARE HAVING A HARD TIME POSTING ON THIS NEW DHS BLOG. It took me a few tries, but now I seem to have figured it out.....or maybe the webmaster has fixed some glitches.
    I won't waste this opportunity to opine further on Rosas's murder:
    Has anyone else noticed that Obama is MUTE on this issue? I guess he's too busy having beer parties at the White House (to cover for his own mistakes), but he should be ashamed. In my estimation, President Obama's unwillingness to address the out-of-control violence and crime at our nation's border(s) proves what we Americans have known for quite some time: This administration is focused on but one thing. They are too busy with their plans to
    take away the last of our freedoms through the implementation of Socialist tactics. Every effort, good or bad, has a tipping point. This administration's audacity is about to tip, and the run down the other side will be swift and sure. Americans won't knuckle-under to tyranny.

    We, the United States of America are under seige regarding the

    arrested!! You do not stand behind Sheriff from Arizona who in
    fact follows the immigration laws -- you denounce him for doing
    his job "protecting the American Citizens and legal immigrants".
    I am truly disappointed with the leadership today -- when it
    appears to defend those that have broken our laws!!! There is
    no commements here that would pay back all of us for the support
    you have taxed us for paying for those that do not pay! The only way
    we can right this wrong is to institute 287G, Secure our Border
    immediately and systematically State by State setup an office to
    return the entire families of those that have entered illegally.
    Yes, it can be done -- But as I am told -- It must start at the TOP!!! Additionally, STAND BEHIND OUR Police Dept, Code Enforcement
    Dept, CIA and Military. Bring them home to defend our borders!!!
    Your immediate response to the urgent need would be appreciated!

Agen Rosas is but a small blip on the radar to her. She and Obama have shut down workplace enforcement raids, and agents know better than to protect themselves lest they end up like Agents Ramos and Compean.

I'm tired of hearing you and Obama PANDER to Hispanic activists who want NO enforcement and want to sponge off of America and pollute its culture and create a lawless mirror image of their own tawdry society. Illegal immigration amounts to a massive rape and desecration of the American people and we're sick of hearing apologists for them, ESPECIALLY in our own government. Hear OUR anger, Madam Secretary and STOP listening to La Raza and the ACLU/SLPC.

    Every member of Congress that has voted against securing our borders and continues to pander to the pro illegal alien agenda is responsible for the death of this agent. How can you people sleep at night knowing that our agents are at such risk because you do nothing to make them more secure. You spend billions to bail out banks and insurance companies, but virtually nothing to secure our countries borders and protect those that put their lives at risk daily. You should be as ashamed of yourselves as we are of you. But remember, we will voice our disregard at the polls next time, and that's a promise

    Our government is responsible for the death of Agent Rosas in its negligence to provide enough border agents to cover the border without great risk to those already there. The Republican and Democrat parties have seen fit to be at the command of their wealthy contributions. And what they what is to be provided with very cheap labor at any cost to the border agents, to US citizens and to the real working class of illegal immigrants. Bush never did what he should have in providing funds for actual on the ground border agents in place on the border and now we see the same thing happening with the Democrat President. It's obvious that the whole Department of Homeland Security is nothing but a farce for this hidden agenda. No amount of PR can gloss over these facts. No politician is worth voting for if he/she will not take care of our country.

    They are sent out there to what has become a no mans land with very little weapons and no help from our government.

    When is Washington going to wake up to the fact that Mexico is invading the U.S., We must increase the budget for Border Patrol, Build the Fence, deport known illegal alien criminals, secure the border and un-elect any Senator or Member of the House of Representatives who are turning a blind eye to the invasion.

    This man lost his life because the government has treated border security like a joke for over a quarter century. Bottom line: It's gotten out of control down there and Agent Rosas paid the ultimate price for the futzing around of the Bush, Clinton and Obama administrations.

    It's very sad that another American a law enforcement officer had to die at the hands of another illegal immigrant while DHS sets on their hands and leaves the border wide open.
    I blame DHS just as much as I do the illegal immigrant that did this.
    Janet Napolitano should resign, she should and her open border policies should have never had that job.

    My condolences to the officers family.

    The death of Border Patrol Agent Rosas is a travesty.

    Why is our borders and ports not secured?
    We know drugs are entering
    We know illegal aliens are entering
    We know that human trafficking is taking place
    We know that the violence on our southern border is escalating

    And yet we send our agents out in many cases out manned and
    out gunned and for what
    Cheap labor and future votes

    This Administration and Homeland Security
    should be ashamed of themselves.

    I wonder if they feel any responsibility for Agent Rosas's death
    and the pain and suffering others must endure at the hands of someone who should not be in our country to begin with.

    We have our brave men and women securing borders all around the world and yet we cannot secure our own - correction = we could, we just do not have the right people in office with enough canola's to do so - a situation we must change.

    Memorial services set in El Centro for slain border agent Robert Rosas Jr.

    A public memorial service in his hometown of El Centro is scheduled Friday for U.S. Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas, who was shot and killed while on duty near Campos last Thursday.

    The service for Rosas, 30, is set for 9 a.m. at Southwest High School, 2001 Ocotillo Drive, El Centro, California 92243.

    The alleged gunmen have yet to be publicly identified by U.S. officials, though a half-dozen arrests have been reported in Mexico and the U.S.

    Rosas was investigating suspicious activity in an area notorious for alien and drug smuggling when he was shot several times.

    The Rosas public memorial will include participation by the agent's family and U.S. Border Patrol officials.

    The ceremony will include customary law enforcement services for a fallen fellow officer, including a Border Patrol Honor Guard, folded flag presentation, 21 gun salute, echo taps, bagpipers, riderless horse, missing man fly-over, and dispatch last call.

    Burial services will be held immediately follow at Evergreen Cemetery in El Centro, California.

    Additionally, a memorial account has been established for Agent Rosas and his family through Cabrillo Credit Union. The account number is 186716-02

With these extra personal I would like to see patrols in remote areas done in pairs with one man tracking and the other walking along at the ready with a full automatic M-4 or M-16. I would also like the USBP to switch to Glock 40 calibers with ammunition that has a one round knock down.

    Napolitano and the Obama administration refuse to secure the border for fear of upseting the illegal aliens. Agent Rosas probably had to think twice about defending himself for fear that Napolitano would prosecute him if he wounded an illegal, and this hesitation may have proven fatal. I hold the government responsible, in part, for his death. Why don't Democrats ever support our law enforcement officers? Why can't they enforce the immigration laws of this country?

    By the way, I must have missed Obama's condolences to the family. I guess he didn't want to upset his compadres at La Raza, and he was too busy calling a Mass. police officer stupid.

No Amnesty, Secure the Border. Why is DHS giving out green cards to illegal aliens using fake and/or forged documents? Isn't that a crime in addition to entering the U.S. illegally?

If the people charged with enforcing our borders do not wake up and smell the coffee, that is THE distinct possibility. And when it begins, it will be Hell to pay before it is quelled.

    How many more American citizens, police officers, INNOCENT AMERICANS have to be killed and otherwise victimized by illegals before Janet Napolitano decided to secure that border and enforce current immigration law?

    It's an absolute disgrace that Napolitano seems more concerned in protecting the "sensitivities" and rhetoric of mexico, than she does protecting American citizens - whom she has sworn to protect!

    When does the lives of American citizens become more important than the so called "dreams of a better life" of those who violate our sovereignty on a daily basis! Those who immigrate to this country LEGALLY also want a so called "better life." They manage to pursue that opportunity legally. Yet Janet seems intent on rewarding those who violate our sovereignty with the same gift. Shameful!

    The perception is that Janet Napolitano seems more concerned with passing amnesty and rewarding those who have violated our sovereignty than she does securing that border and enforcing current immigration law! That's unacceptable!

    If Janet Napolitano cannot commit to enforcing our laws and protecting Americans from the ravages of illegal immigration, then she needs to be replaced with someone who will!

    This border patrol agent is dead, due to our own DHS department lack of enforcement and weakness. I have come to the conclusion that DHS and Janet Napolitano care more about the lawless Mexicans on the other side than the American people. There is no hope and this is only the beginning of the drug cartel killings. How on earth can we expect murderers who are used to killing chiefs of police, police officers, political figures and etc, to not see the weakness of our Department of Homeland security in the US and not take advantage of it?, Until we get tough on illegal immigration and secure our borders we will have more Americans killed. My condolences and prayers go to the Rosa family and I hope and pray that Janet Napolitano will wake up and stop pandering to Mexicans and protect this land. We are not dealing with poor people in search of a better life, we are dealing with criminals and period. I wonder how someone can sleep at night knowing that this border patrol is dead because of her lack of enforcement on our borders.

Obama has her under his finger so they can attempt to take over the country. Im not crazy when I see what happened with 9/11 and it was the American citizens who are stopped and frisked, delayed and harassed at the air ports. I see the drug cartel henchmen running around our country freely and now Border partol can't arrest them and Sheriff Arpio's deputies are told to let some go. No wonder Agent Rosas was killed and Obama never addressed the matter openly. He doesn't care about law enforcement as a whole

They should be allowed to shoot to kill and ask questions later when there is a border incursion. We are being invaded by violent, conscienceless foreigners.

    Madam Director od Homeland Security. I feel that you and the current administration bear much of the responsibility for this murder of this fine B.P. agent near Campo. If you had continued with the double-layered fence, as required by Congress and the American people, and started by the Bush administration, this area would already have been fenced off! Instead you have dragged your feet on enforcing the Border, stopped all fence construction, and have softened up deportations of illegals under the 237g plan. You Madam, are SOFT on MEXICAN ILLEGAL ALIENS! Could this possibly be because you have a Mexican grandmother still living in Mexico? You should be doubly ashamed at this agent's death, as he was an American of Mexican decent. HE was enforcing the laws of THIS country, which he loved, and which,apparently, YOU do NOT!
    BUILD a PROPER, DOUBLE LAYERED REAL FENCE, NOW! Prove that you're a REAL American, and not an open-borders sympathizer!

    I live in Houston and we have lost two policemen to illegal aliens in as many years. We have a sanctuary policy that has now been reinforced by the DHS by way of taking the teeth out of 287(g) and the stoppage of workplace enforcement raids.

    Houston has changed to the core. We now have multi-national corporations catering just to the hispanic population in this country, Supermercardo De Wal-Mart. Houston has had whole neighborhoods over run by illegal aliens, dropping the home values, overcrowding our schools and overcrowding our health care facilities.

And adding more B.P. agents and pitting more National Guard on the border and allowing them and the B.P. agents to shoot back without fearing that our own government would prosecute them, a la Johnny Sutton.
    Instead of investigating Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona he should be supported in his and his P.D.'s efforts to get rid of some of these illegal alien invaders who are killing our citizens.
    Sheriff Joe would run DHS the way it should be run. The border would be flooded with agents and more of these illegal drug cartel killers would be caught.

    The increased militarization of the border is almost certainly why Officer Ramos was murdered - the alien smugglers accused of killing him are increasingly desperate to find ways to bring aliens into the U.S. I doubt that double fences, or sending more guards to the border, or anything else, would have prevented this tragedy.

    If anything, a greater military presence and a harder border barrier with Mexico puts the officers who patrol the line at greater risk. Without real reform of our immigration policies, we will continue to see deaths along the border, both of our officers, and of hundreds of individuals who die in the deserts and mountains, trying desperately to get here.

    I don't believe that anyone should enter the US illegally, but I also don't believe that we can continue to allow death to be a likely consequence of illegal entry to the US. We need better immigration policies, and less demonization of our neighbor to the south.

    My condolences to Officer Rosas' family and to his brave colleagues who continue to patrol the border.

The southern border is wide open, very dangerous, and Ms. Napolitano has decided to put her attention and resources on the northern border! We need armed military, with permission to shoot, on the southern border. There is a war going on there and ignoring it will not help.Securing our borders SHOULD be DHS's top priority.

    The time has passed too long with inaction. The deportations must begin.

    All of the blogging in the world is not going to make a difference. "Evil prevails when good men do nothing". Sound familiar? Ben Franklin has given us all the tools necessary to cement our future, but we can't sit here and wait for the government to do our bidding. THEY ARE NOT ON OUR SIDE!!!!! If you want anything good to come of this, you're going to have to stand up and do it for yourselves, and expect to fight our government as well as the Mexicans, because they see the same end, with only slightly different means. WAKE UP< AMERICA!!!! You have elected a president who doesn't like this country. He has in turn, appointed people to important posts who don't like this country. If you think they are going to do ANYTHING you are going to approve of, YOU HAVE BECOME THE PROBLEM. You sit and wait, I'm going to seriously contemplate another option.

    Our Congress has few qualms about loaning out $70 billion to rescue our banking and loan institutions that deserve to fail, but just cannot seem to spare a measley $3 billion to fully secure our borders.

    Minuteman Project Extends Condolences- Agent Rosas and his relatives

    The Minuteman Project extends its condolences to the family and friends of these fallen heroes. Members of law enforcement, accompanied by the support and appreciation of a law abiding society, provide the essential insurance that our nation will be preserved as a civilized American society.

    Sadly, the price paid for the guarantee of domestic tranquility is sometimes overwhelming and devastating, as is evident by the tragic events occurring in Campo, Ca. last week in the deserts of California involving BP Agent Rosas.

    These fallen officers are not only heroes. They are martyrs who sacrificed themselves so that the rest of us could live free of the fear and abuse of incorrigible criminals. God bless them all.

    Why is the President able to address Mexico regarding U.S. immigration policy but STILL has NOT personally addressed to his nation the murder of our federal agent, Robert Rosas, Jr. A statement from the DHS Secretary is not enough. As the ultimate boss, the president owes Agent Rosas and the Rosas family personal condolences. He further needs to address THIS nation about the murder and why it will not stand! Where is our leadership!
