Border Patrol Agent Ignacio Ramos Viciously Assaulted By Illegal Aliens In PrisonTopics: Immigration and Border Issues
Euphoric Reality (HT - Dan Riehl) is all over the story about Border Patrol agent Ignacio Ramos being viciously assaulted in prison, where he is being held in general population. According to Ramos' uncle:
"Nacho was assaulted Saturday night around 2200 by about five illegal immigrants. He has multiple and severe injuries. They put him in isolation for now, he has not been allowed to see a doctor since Saturday. They were yelling at him in Spanish, "Maten a la migra!" which means "Kill the Border Patrol agent."This report has been independently corroborated through Joe Loya, Ramos' father-in-law, and also media sources.
Another family member said Nacho was attacked after he fell asleep Saturday night. Assaulters went after him with repeated blows and kicks. Ramos suffered wounds to his back, shoulder, arms and head. There is concern that Agent Ramos was not given medical treatment after the incident and may not have received medical attention for up to 48 hours. An investigation is expected to be launched Tuesday.
The assault occurred at 10:00pm Saturday night (Feb 3rd), apparently following the airing of America's Most Wanted:
