On Friday, July 15, 2016, U.S. Border Patrol Agents in the Laredo Sector arrested an individual suspected of entering the U.S. illegally. According to published reports, the suspect was combative, requiring agents to subdue and restrain the suspect.

While escorting the subject to the vehicle, the individual became unresponsive and agents immediately provided medical attention until Laredo emergency medical services arrived and transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The NBPC recognizes any loss of life is regrettable. For this reason, all incidents resulting in death are thoroughly investigated by local, state, and federal agencies. No less than 5 different agencies will conduct separate investigations.

The NBPC requests that members of the media and the general public refrain from speculation and innuendo until the facts are in and the multiple state, local and federal investigative agencies have completed their important work.

The NBPC stands in support of our agents. To ensure our agent’s constitutional rights to due process are protected, we will provide legal counsel and other services.
