It might be a new year, but the problems at the U.S.-Mexico border continue to exist in serious ways. A Border Patrol agent working in the Rio Grande Valley Sector near Fronton, Texas was shot at from the Mexican side of the border while arresting someone who had just illegally crossed the river into the United States.

A statement from U.S. Customs and Border Protection provided to Townhall explained no one was injured and no shots were returned:

“This morning at approximately 8:45 am near Fronton, Texas, shots were fired from Mexico in the direction of Border Patrol agents during an apprehension of a migrant in an area adjacent to the Rio Grande.  No one was injured in the incident and shots were not returned.  The Border Patrol agent’s service unit sustained gunshot damage. The incident is being reviewed by the FBI and CBP’s Office of Professional Responsibility.”
