Border patrol agents find 62 immigrants crammed in Texas home

Those words are echoing across social media today after a Border Patrol vehicle was caught on video apparently striking a Native American man and driving away, the New York Times reports.

"They just ran me over, bro", Remes says.

The man was later identified as Paulo Remes, a member of the tribe. Instead of slowing or stopping, the vehicle knocks him over.

The Tohono O'odham reservation, which straddles the U.S. -Mexico border, became a well-travelled entry point to the U.S. for undocumented immigrants and traffickers after federal officials tightened border security at larger points of entry.

Rob Daniels, a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Arizona, did not immediately respond to The Hill's request for comment on Saturday.

"This enforcement action demonstrates the United States Border Patrol's commitment to work with the Webb County Sheriff's Office and other law enforcement partners to disrupt illicit activity, deny criminal organizations the ability to operate, and protect human life", Laredo Sector Assistant Chief Patrol Agent Jose Martinez said in a statement.


"We stress honor and integrity in every aspect of our mission".

However, the agency would not reveal the driver's identity yet as the matter "is still under investigation".

On Friday, Tohono O'odham Nation Chairman Edward D. Manuel labeled the video disturbing in a statement.

"The safety and wellbeing of the general public is the Nation's top priority, and the Nation's leadership is monitoring this issue closely", Manuel said.
